According to the World Health Organization, more than 360 million people have disabling hearing loss, with the greatest prevalence living in developing countries. Unfortunately, less than three percent of these individuals can afford hearing aids or even have access to the care they need. The Starkey Hearing Foundation is working tirelessly to change this by building strong partnerships, empowering local teams and expanding our three-phase Community-Based Hearing HealthCare model around the world. Delta Zeta is proud to partner with this organization to bring better quality of life to many people worldwide.
Delta Zeta Homeruns for Hearing
We raised $8,966 for Starkey Hearing Foundation through Homeruns for Hearing this March. Our philanthropy means so much to those who have a difficult time with speech and hearing, so we could think of no better way to raise money than by taking a swing and hitting a few homeruns.
Hamburgers for Hearing
In the Fall, we host "Hamburgers for Hearing," at a local venue in Auburn's Downtown area. To raise money, we sell tickets, which include a burger and fries, and t-shirts. Friends and family gather to listen to music, eat great food and raise money for a great cause. It's a great event for the entire community.
Our local philanthropy
The mission of the Lee County Humane Society is to advance humane treatment and responsible ownership of companion animals through community education, animal sheltering and adoption, and alleviation of animal suffering.
Their vision is to be the leading advocate for companion animals in our community. They envision a future in which animals are valued, pet overpopulation is eliminated, and every adoptable companion animal has a loving and responsible home.
Delta Zeta sisters volunteer weekly at the humane society: walking dogs, bringing in supplies, cleaning cages, and even adopting animals of their own.
