Have a Heart, Lend a Hand, Make a Difference.
After the devastating floods from Hurricane Matthew, leaving many without power, homes, food, and water, the sisters of Sigma Omicron Epsilon, Inc. worked together to help the NC communities that were hit the hardest (Pitt and Robeson Counties). Many items were donated, money was raised, and many sisters volunteered in the shelters, distribution centers, at churches and in the homes of loved ones that lost everything. Thank you to all that helped SOE, in any way, during these hard times.
On November 19, 2016, the sisters of SOE held a thanksgiving dinner at Pleasant View Baptist Church in Fairmont, NC for the victims of Hurricane Matthew. Over 250 plates were served throughout the community. Thank you to all that helped either by donating their time, food or funds to feed the many displaced families.

On November 13th, sisters from various areas gathered together for the first “Party in Pink”, a fundraiser event supporting our National Philanthropy. Sorority sister, Cheyenna Francis, gave an excellent short presentation about breast cancer, knowing what is normal for you, signs and symptoms, and how to properly perform a self-breast exam. To raise money, a silent auction was held at the event. Items varied from, jewelry, coffee cups, butterfly pictures, Bluetooth speakers, scarves, hats and so much more. A total of $156.00 was raised at the event. All proceeds from the event will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Thanks to all that donated, participated, and helped to make the event so successful.
