LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – What better way to celebrate 100 years of public service than one more day of giving back.

That’s exactly what the local chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority did at the Ronald McDonald house Saturday.

The sorority walked supplies they’ve collected to the house from 15th and Chestnut Street.

“It’s beyond words to be a part of Delta. It’s beyond words to be of service to be a part of our community,” Vice president Carolyn Whitaker-Tandy said. “It’s always about being more than who you are and being a part of something that’s greater than you. This is an organization that has a legacy of 250,000 women, African-American women predominantly and we’re just so proud to be a part of it.”

Delta Sigma Theta is also doing a Sunday morning service to celebrate the actual centennial date at Quinn Chapel AME Church on Muhammad Ali Blvd. The service begins at 10:45 A.M.
