Delta Zeta’s philanthropy is hearing and speech. They support this by donating to Gallaudet University, The Starkey Hearing Foundation, as well as the House Research Institute. They also help raise money to send children to The Painted Turtle camp, in California. Every year Delta Zeta holds a turtle tug event, where teams of five are able to sign up and play tug of war over a pit of jello. It is a messy, yet exciting way to raise money for a cause that these women support.
