OPERATION BIG BOOK BAG IS ONCE AGAIN A SUCCESS, BENEFITING HARTFORD'S YOUTH

Updated: Oct 23, 2023

SEPTEMBER 12, 2023- HARTFORD, CT| Theta Alpha Sigma Alumnae Chapter once again made a community impact in the Greater Hartford area by supplying nearly 400 backpacks filled with school supplies to the students at the Boys & Girls Club of Hartford on September 12, 2022. Donations to the Operation Big Book Bag initiative were supported through social media investments, local businesses, and in-kind shipment of supplies. Corporate sponsorship included the WNBA’s Connecticut Sun, who provided 100 stuffed bookbags to the cause. The chapter was able to collect enough supplies to provide support for four locations of the club across the city.



Each student received a backpack filled with pens, pencils, notebooks, folders, and other educational necessities. “It was important that we honor the legacy of our Founders, who were educators, by ensuring we impact our community in a grand way,” said chapter Basileus Terrika Foster-Brasby. In the last year, over 1100 families in Hartford, CT have received assistance through the Operation Big Book Bag initiative.
