Speech and Hearing

Delta Zeta's national philanthropy is speech and hearing. Delta Zeta members volunteer many hours for speech and hearing organizations in their communities, such as tutoring children with hearing challenges or spearheading fundraising initiatives. Donations collected assist with speech programs and provide equipment and devices to those with hearing challenges. Funds also support programs aimed at hearing loss prevention. Delta Zeta has national partnerships focused on speech and hearing-related causes with Starkey Hearing Foundation and Gallaudet University, and works closely with The Painted Turtle Camp. In addition, in 2018 the Theta chapter decided to add The Flying Horse Farms as our local philanthropic partner.
