The Delta Gamma Sorority has provided several years of service to the Division for the Visually Impaired and can be found at DVI's Instructional Materials and Resource Center during the school year where they provide assistance with our production, labeling and cataloging of textbooks that are in accessible formats. These textbooks are used by the blind and visually impaired clients that are in the State of Delaware (Kindergarten through Twelfth Grade) schools.
The Delta Gamma sisters also assist DVI with administering consumer satisfaction surveys that are used to ensure that the DVI continues to fulfill its mission in helping the blind and visually impaired consumers that it serves.
In addition, the sorority sisters provide assistance with agency-wide mailings, outreach events and summer camp recruitment with Camp Abilities (Delaware).
In 2017, the ninety-two Delta Gamma sisters spent more than five hundred hours of service that have helped benefit the lives of the blind and visually impaired Delawareans supported by DVI. This includes, but is not limited to, three hundred school age children and more than six hundred adults.
