This month, members of the Coral Springs-based Phi Xi Zeta chapter of Zeta Phi Beta are helping to clean up the community and meet with first responders.
On Saturday, February 11, at 8:00 a.m., members will meet at Ramblewood Drive to pick up debris along the north and southbound sides of North University Drive. The street cleanup concludes at Royal Palm Drive, where a photo will be taken to document all the trash that has been collected.
Phi Xi Zeta chapter member, Dayena Corcoran, had the idea to adopt a section of North University Drive to provide service to the very community the chapter operates in. This partnership has been going strong since 2021 and continues to evolve.
The “Ladies in Blue,” a nickname for the women’s group, can be seen all around Coral Springs serving the community. Last year, the organization adopted Coral Springs Elementary, where they work closely with the administration to support arrival, dismissal, the school supply drive, Read for the Record, and more.
On Saturday, February 25, at 10:30 a.m., they will recognize first responders of the Coral Springs Police Department. Mental health information will be provided, along with tips to prevent the spreading of COVID-19 and influenza. Snacks will also be available.
Founded in 1920, Zeta Phi Beta is a women’s service organization that offers many cultural, community, and educational programs in Broward County. The Phi Xi Zeta chapter was chartered on February 28, 2008, by seven women looking to expand the impact of Zeta.
Over the years, the chapter has geared many of its events towards enhancing life for vulnerable populations, including the youth, children with special needs, and survivors of domestic violence.
The chapter has several internal events for members only in February, including donating baskets of love to Women In Distress. This initiative provides essential items to domestic violence survivors needing assistance as they move into a new residence.
