The Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) is a national charity that provides community-based support, knowledge and a national voice to ensure Canadians that are blind or partially sighted have the opportunity to enjoy life. Since its founding in 1918, the CNIB has grown to become the primary resource for Canadians, and dedicated specialists provide people of all ages with the personalized rehabilitation services they need. CNIB houses the largest non-traditional print library as well as runs camps for visually impaired children. Their services truly do make a huge difference in the lives of visually impaired Canadians.
Delta Gamma is proud to call the CNIB our Philanthropy, and dedicate our time to helping those who are visually impaired within our community. Our motto is “Do Good” and we live by those words. Since the Zeta Omicron chapter established itself at Wilfrid Laurier University (1991-2014), Delta Gamma’s have organized and participated in events each year that raise money for the CNIB including Anchor Splash, Anchor Slam and Delta Gambling.
As Delta Gamma’s, we are proud of our continued dedication to the CNIB.
Delta Gamma’s across North America are dedicated to sight preservation and working with those who are visually impaired. Delta Gamma was one of the first Fraternities to establish their own philanthropy, Service for Sight. Service for Sight, like the CNIB, supports those who are visually impaired through a variety of initiatives such as Joining Forces. Joining Forces is a program that supports those in the military that have sustained eye and sight related injuries.
