Members of the local Nu Beta Chapter of Sigma Phi Gamma International Sorority recently partnered with Goody’s for the retail company’s 30 Days of Giving campaign, which helped to raise nearly $700 for several local projects.

 

Goody’s launched the month-long campaign to support local organizations that make a positive impact in their communities. 

 

Following the campaign, Goody’s representatives Dottie Allen, Brittnie Whetsel and Ashley Savage presented a check to Sigma Phi Gamma to help support three different efforts — Logan County Weekday Religious Education, Youth Outreach Program and Warm Clothes for Kids.

 

Sigma Phi Gamma is a friendship and service sorority whose members give hands-on and financial support to individuals and charitable causes, both through local chapters and on the national level. Nu Beta members include Missy Gantner, Mary Ransbottom, Shirley Meeker, Jayne McAdams, Celia Lange, Diane Hager, Cindy Titus, Nancy Forsythe, Marj Branch, Julie Schrader and KimberLee Kinney.

The Hi Point Women’s Center hosts a 30th Anniversary Celebration of Life event Thursday, Jan. 22, at the Bellefontaine First Church of God. 

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with light refreshments available. The program begins at 7 p.m., and will reflect on the past three decades for the center and what’s in store for the future. 

In other Hi Point Women’s Center news, Calvary Christian School kindergarten students conducted a Christmas-time project, where they brought in items for mothers and infants being served by the center.

The items were gift wrapped and then delivered to the women’s center. The students donated the items instead of purchasing gifts for each other this year.
