Chapter History

Since its chartering, Delta Xi Omega has been a constant presence in the community providing awareness through programs and events that focus on Education, Health, Family, and the Arts. In 1957, Delta Xi Omega supported the “School Milk Project” by providing milk for lunches in eleven indigent elementary schools in the area. In conjunction with the milk project, the chapter assisted with getting children to the Polio Clinic. The chapter, in partnership with other sister Greek organizations, initiated the first door-to-door campaign in Salisbury for contributions to the Cancer Drive and Heart Fund. Over the years, Delta Xi Omega has provided summer reading enrichment programs, free books through a Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) grant, sponsored programs for youth leadership development, and supported organizations in the community that help families in need.

Since 1948, Delta Xi Omega has awarded over $150,000 in scholarships to high school seniors in the community of Rowan and Davie Counties and over $75,000 in donations to community service programs.  Also, approximately two thousand (2,000) girls and boys have benefited from the activities connected with the FASHIONETTA® and the Cinderella Ball fundraisers.

   

In 1949, the chapter presented Camilla Williams, a professional fashion model, in recital as its first cultural and financial event. In 1952, the first FASHIONETTA® was attempted with much success.  The Birthday Calendar was also a financial project that was first published in 1953 and was a worthwhile effort for fundraising.  In 1956, the chapter presented its first Cinderella Ball.  The event was successful and was adopted as the annual fundraising project for the chapter.  In 2011, the chapter decided to reinstate the FASHIONETTA® as its fundraising project.
