Below, some of Iota Zeta Zeta's programs are listed. Each are infused with the founding principles of our sorority. IZZ participates in a myriad of projects in the community, but below we have listed the national initiatives and our signature chapter programs that we participate in annually.
March of Dimes March for Babies/Prematurity Awareness Program
Our chapter participates in the March of Dimes walk by raising funds and/or registration to join in the fight to ensure babies are born healthy. We also work with the MOD on a national level, as they support us in our national signature program, Stork’s Nest.
The Prematurity Awareness Program occurs in November, working with the March of Dimes to focus the nation’s attention on premature births by getting the messege out to communites, chuches, and the public-at-large.
Cook for Kids at Crisis Nursery
Several times during the year, IZZ cooks lunch and spends time with the chilren at the Minneapolis Crisis Nursery. The nursery's purpose is to end child abuse and neglect by assisting parents and collaborating with local county and community organizations to create strong, healthy families. Parents and caregivers are able to drop their child off for an emergency break for up to 72 hours.
