A Message from our President

Greetings, Friends. Welcome to the official website of the Lancaster (PA) Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. (LAC). Committed to Sisterhood, Scholarship and Service, LAC is a small but mighty chapter that, for more than 40 years, has served communities in Lancaster County and Oxford, PA.

Our Sorority Sister, Shirley Chisholm, once said that “service is the rent that you pay for room on this earth.” We uphold that idea through our commitment to the Sorority’s 5 point programmatic thrust of Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness 


&  Involvement, Physical Mental Health, and Political Awareness & Involvement.

Some of the ways that our concentrated efforts have made lasting impacts on the communities we serve have been providing scholarships to students attending institutions of higher education, participating in voter registration drives, co-sponsoring forums on breast cancer awareness, domestic violence awareness, and options for healthier lifestyles. We have
participated in literacy walks and runs for combatting heart disease. LAC has provided workshops on home ownership, getting out of debt, college/retirement planning, entrepreneurship, and finding financial freedom.

Soror Chisholm also said “You don’t make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas.” LAC partners with various civic, educational and service minded entities to implement those ideas that are dedicated to uplifting the community and finding effective ways to move all of us towards a brighter future.We welcome you to visit our website often to find out more about our activities and ways you can join us in serving.


With Gratitude and Devotion,

April G. Russell, President
Lancaster (PA) Alumnae Chapter
