The ladies of Hinesville Alumnae Chapter, Delta Sigma Theta, Sorority, Inc., hosted Lanes for Literacy, a bowling tournament, Sunday, March 25, at Marne Lanes on Fort Stewart to raise funds for TREE, Training and Recourses for Early Education, a non-profit organization that specializes in early childhood development, resources, and training located in Durban, South Africa.
TREE’s vision is to ensure that young children develop to their full potential in line with their rights and needs. Furthermore, TREE’s mission is to promote quality holistic early childhood development and care for children up to 4 years old. TREE promotes an essential package of integrated services that aims to ensure the holistic development of children. This event supported the efforts of Delta Sigma Theta alumnae chapter’s International Awareness and Involvement Committee, in that they commit themselves to public service at home and abroad.
There were 18 teams in the tournament, and trophies were awarded to first, second and third place, as well as some youth trophies. The chapter exceeded its fundraising goal of $500 to over $700. Hinesville Alumnae Chapter would like to thank the community for its undying support and encourages everyone to follow their Facebook page for future events.
