Social Action

In 1934, a concept was presented to ensure all people regardless of race, national origin, creed, or religion would have the same opportunities and be treated fairly. Since then, this concept has been used to take stands against unjust laws, inform and educate about the issues affecting our communities. Here is a list of the initiatives under the Social Action Programs:

Teens Keepin' It Real

The project is a collaborative with local organizations in the Macon area. The project is for teenagers and topics cover summer employment opportunities, teenage pregnancy, financial responsibility, and peer pressure.

March for Babies

Phi Beta Sigma partners with the March of Dimes. Through this partnership, the two organizations will work together to prevent premature births and build strong fathers and male role modes in the African American community through sponsoring Strong Fathers seminars and Stepping To Save Babies. Our members are committed to takethe following actions:

  • Sigma's volunteering for local March of Dimes chapters, committees and boards.
  • Chapters co-sponsoring and leading with the March of Dimes Strong Fathers seminars in our communities.
  • Sigma's Stepping To Save Babies initiative: Our goal is to raise $75,000 with each chapter contributing a minimum of $300 for March For Babies.  

Street Clean Up

The chapter performs quarterly street clean-up initiatives along Old Clinton Road and Davis Street in Macon, Georgia. The clean-up is done in collaboration with

Clothing the G.A.P.

This collaborative is an umbrella for Project S.O.F.T Shoes. S.O.F.T Shoes is a project to collect free (slightly used to new shoes) to the less fortunate during the Christmas Holiday. This event is supported by other Greek-lettered organizations and mainly by the caring individuals of Macon-Bibb County.

Feed the Less Fortunate

The chapter annually provides free hams, turkeys and other non-perishable food items to the less fortunate during the Thanksgiving Holiday. This event is sponsored by local grocery businesses in the area and various organizations. The Chapter also hosts the annual Canned Goods Drive to support this effort.
