March for Babies
Begun in 1970, March for Babies (formerly WalkAmerica) is the first and best-loved walking event in the nation. As the March of Dimes biggest fund-raiser, March for Babies supports research and programs to help babies in your community and across the country get a healthy start.
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority has been a national March for Babies team since 1998.
Zeta Prematurity Awareness Program
Zeta Prematurity Awareness Program (ZPAP) occurs annually during the entire month of November in support of World Prematurity Day on November 17th and the March of Dimes. Since 2003, Zeta chapters and auxiliaries reach out to over 300 houses of worship annually across the country and distribute information on prematurity awareness, causes of prematurity and the importance of seeking prenatal care in an effort to decrease infant mortality and the number of low birth weight babies. In 2014, over 100,000 people were reached through the Sorority’s grassroots campaign.
Elder Care Initiative
Elder Care Initiative strives to provide education and awareness about preparing for your senior years. The African American community is least prepared when it comes to retirement, estate planning and understanding the legal and financial preparation needed to care for parents, grandparents and ultimately, for our own long term care. It is a comprehensive program that also focuses on elder abuse awareness, financial peace, supporting the caregiver and volunteering at senior care facilities.
Adopt-A-School allows members of Zeta Phi Beta to identify low performing schools and provide assistance in a number of ways to enhance the educational experience, increase test scores and grades. Members purchase supplies and/or equipment, provide volunteer hours, assist with parent engagement programs and work with administrators to identify needs that may be specific to that particular school.
