Today, November 5th, 2016, the sisters of Delta Epsilon Beta completed their bi-annual community service event for Adopt-a-Highway. Delta Epsilon Beta, or DEB for short, is a local Greek sorority, having only two chapters open in the United States.
The Delaware Valley University chapter is the one that is featured in this particular blog. The girls got up bright and early on a Sunday morning to drive to County Line Road in Chalfont, Pennsylvania, where they proceeded to pick up trash on both sides of the road for a two-mile stretch.
This is one of the many community service events Delta Epsilon Beta takes part in. They also help out at an alpaca farm and raise funds for those in need in various ways.
This sorority shows every day that even though it is a social chapter, it is still involved with helping the community.
Pictured here are four active sisters of Delta Epsilon Beta doing their duty to society and trying to keep Pennsylvania beautiful one cigarette butt at a time.
Both active sisters and potential new members went to this event, which increased sisterly bonding. This semester, DEB has three wonderful potential new members going through the sorority’s new member education class. If they pass the class, they will be initiated as active sisters of the sorority. They are doing fantastic so far, and are real champs for wanting to spend their day of rest picking up trash.
Active sister Chelsea “Journey” Keegan found a fun piece of “trash” that she decided to keep. Anyone want to go to the Evangelista wedding?
Sororities, at least in my experience, are so much more than throwing parties and having sleepovers. They are all about getting to know an awesome group of girls that hold the same values as yourself, and trying to make the world we live in a better place.
