Greetings from Delta Lambda!
April Showers Event
Each year during the month of April, Delta Lambda donates needed items to a community organization that seeks to improve health. This year our April Showers Event was held on Wednesday, April 25th. The community organization honored was the Stork’s Nest Project of Xi Zeta Chapter, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. Stork’s Nest is a cooperative project with the March of Dimes developed to help expectant mothers get early and regular prenatal care so babies will have a healthy early start in life. Expectant mothers that keep prenatal appointments and attend educational sessions receive baby items as incentives through the Stork’s Nest. Ms. Mary Lardy (Director of Stork’s Nest), Mrs. Sherry Brooks, and Ms. Delores Lotts, all members of Xi Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., willingly volunteer at the Stork’s Nest. The Stork’s Nest is located in the CareSTL Health Clinic (formerly Myrtle Hilliard Davis Comprehensive Health Centers. Ms. Lardy informed us that the Stork’s Nest operates each Friday from 9am-2pm. Any expectant mother that attends any of the CareSTL Health Clinics can be referred to the Stork’s Nest by their health care provider. Many baby items including diapers, wipes, onesies, bottles, socks, etc. were donated.
