Nationally, Delta Gamma offers Hope Serving programs that encourages learning and critical thinking through hands-on service, community involvement, civic and social justice education. Two women from Gamma Alpha were selected for Hope Serving experiences. Paige Osterfeld (back row, second from left) is a sophomore and had the opportunity to serve as a volunteer for the USABA National Goalball Tournament. Goalball is a sport designed for athletes with visual impairments. Paige and other members from around the country served as judges, timers, stat keepers, food servers, and guides during the tournament. Paige’s favorite part about her experience was building personal relationships with the athletes.
Maggie Webb is a junior member and had the opportunity to serve as a counselor at OWL Camp, which is a free summer camp offered to children who are blind or visually impaired. Maggie and other DGs spent a week at YMCA Camp Classen where kids were given the opportunity to go horse back riding, shoot archery, rock climb, kayak, and more. “We are so proud of our women for believing so passionately in our philanthropy and the idea that independence is possible or everyone. Paige and Maggie continue to inspire our chapter with their servant hearts.”
