In the spring and fall semesters of 2007, the 45 Delts completed 2,679 (59.5 hours per man) hours of community service. The hours were compiled through help the fraternity gave to Marietta College by helping with set-up for football tailgates and other events. On top of this service, the Delts did their annual volunteer work with the City of Marietta’s Sternwheeler festival. The Delts set up and tear down the entire stage on the riverboat that showcases the acts for the weekends.

The Delts also take part in Delta Tau Delta’s national philanthropy project called Adopt-a-School. They all pledge one hour a week to the Marietta Middle School and help tutor in math and English classes, as well as the after school program. Adopt-a-School is a national program to give back to a chapter’s community. The Delts at Marietta accept this responsibility and gladly give their time and abilities to help out the Marietta community.

This year, the volunteerism has continued. Every possible Delt has been approved for Adopt-a-School and we have filled up every possible spot the middle school needs from volunteers.

The concept of volunteerism fulfills our values of Life-long Learning and Growth are Vital and Strengthening Community is Essential to Our Vitality. It is with these values that we welcome all chances to further ourselves and our communities.
