Sorors of Theta Rho Omega Chapter participated in a Galentine's Day event on February 25, 2023, hosted by Sisterly Relations after our February chapter meeting, supporting a restaurant in our charter town of Markham, Illinois! We gathered at “On the 9” an new black-owned establishment with a great menu, featuring a black female guest chef known for her specialty waffles! Thirty-five Sorors attended. Financial impact the vendor is estimated at $650. Pictures below of Sorors enjoying themselves.
As part of the MLK Day of Service, Theta Rho Omega partnered with members of the community to collect toiletries and household essentials to support the Anew: Building Beyond Violence & Abuse “new housing” program. These items help domestic violence survivors and their families who are re-establishing housing. Picture below: Sorors dropping off donations at the Anew office in Homewood, Illinois.
