San Francisco Theta Alumnae


Adopt-A-FamilyEach holiday season, it is important for our chapter not only to appreciate our friends, family, theta sisters, and gifts we have in our lives but to give back to our community. It has become an annual tradition for our chapter to sponsor a Bay Area family in need though the Compass Family Services Adopt-A-Family Program.

This year, we are sponsoring a family of 4 who live in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district. We’re hoping to help fulfill some of their holiday hopes by providing a few gifts, as well as some experiences they can do as a family (Children’s Fairyland, bay area museums, etc) to promote fun and learning for their two children.

When asked about the hopes and dreams of their family, they replied “to create a safe environment, encouraging communication, exposing ourselves to various environments, and promoting creativity.”

We couldn’t be more passionate about helping this family have a safe and happy holiday season and hope you’ll join us in supporting this wish.

As the holidays get into full swing, we hope you are all able to spend some quality time with Friends, Family, Sisters, and also to remember how blessed we all our in our lives.

For the 3rd year in a row, the San Francisco Theta Alumnae group is sponsoring a family who has not been so fortunate. Please join us in giving Magdalena, Guillermo and their children the Christmas and holiday season that they deserve.

We suggest donating a dollar for the each year you have been a Theta (if you are feeling generous, you can even double or triple that amount). Our goal is to raise $500 this year, so anything you can donate is appreciated.

Please remember that all donations should be made by December 9th (the same date as the Holiday Party!) in order for us to have time to purchase and wrap all the gifts for thefamily.

Donations can be made by sending a check (made payable to Kappa Alpha Theta) to Emily Brown, 7E Fort Mason, SF, CA 94123, Paypal to Katy Hanson, or by credit card via Square at any of our upcoming events.

Thank you so much for joining us in this season of giving.
