International Disaster Relief Funds Are Low

The International Disaster Relief Fund is seriously getting low due the current disasters and need. Please consider helping to replenish the funds needed to assist sisters during the difficult times (make it your chapter's next goal to establish Ways and Means to raise funds)!

    When natural disasters occur such as hurricanes, it is necessary for those sisters in the evacuation area to leave. This is expensive - gas, motels, food, etc. Saving motel fees would be a big plus and ease peoples' worries. Wouldn't it be nice to evacuate to a home where you already have a Beta Sigma Phi sister?

    Due to the fact there have been so many displaced people from acts of nature or other causes,
    Arlene of the Houston Area and The Beta Journal decided to join together to form this special program.

    1. The Beta Journal is not to be held liable for problems or damages that may occur
    with the sister(s) staying in your home.
    2. Please let me know if pets are allowed or children/babies to stay at your residence.
    3. Put down whether you can take or handle a disabled sister.
    4. Also, if you allow smoking or not on or near your premises.
    5. Note if you can offer a sofa or spare room.
    6. Put down how much advance notice you will need. 1 day, 2 days
    7. Let us know if parking is a problem or not.
    8. Put down whether you will supply meals or not. If not, list the nearby restaurants available.
    9. Please let us know what times (months) you will not be available to take in guests.
    10. The accommodations are only for one to three days at most. If there are more days involved, then you and the visiting sister and family can work the terms out.

    We are so very thankful you are willing to help!
