Since the 1970s, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. and March of Dimes have worked together to help families and babies get the best possible start by raising funds for March for Babies, serving as advocates, and volunteering.

For the past two years, Sigma Gamma Rho members have been collecting personal care kits, sibling kits, and homecoming kits that reached more than 5,000 families in NICUs and in need across the country.
