Specifically, Gamma Kappa Chapter continues to maintain the ideals of the Sorority through worthwhile, meaningful, and impactful programming which benefits Tuskegee University, the City of Tuskegee, Macon County, the State of Alabama, and the Global Community. With “greater laurels to win and greater tasks to begin”, the Chapter’s programmatic thrusts include—but are not limited to–Get Out The Vote initiatives, including voter registration drives; book, food and clothing drives; health and wellness awareness and fundraising initiatives; recycling efforts in support of environmental stewardship and “go green” living; mentoring and tutoring programs at area schools; scholarship donations and programming; leadership development opportunities; support of economic development and empowerment; and activities which promote and support the Arts.
