Heart for Hearing and Speech Day

Heart for Hearing and Speech Day, occurring annually the first Tuesday in May, coincides with the start of Better Hearing and Speech Month, which is a national effort to raise awareness about communications disorders. On this day, each Delta Zeta member is encouraged to tell her friends and family about the Sorority’s efforts to meet global needs for improved hearing health and her personal efforts to raise money for that purpose.

Hearing and speech has been at the center of Delta Zeta Sorority philanthropy efforts since 1954. Each year, chapters host events on college campuses to educate their communities and raise money benefiting our philanthropy partners, including the Starkey Hearing Foundation. On this day, however, each member is demonstrating her personal commitment to a shared purpose.

Diane M. Stecher, Delta Zeta Sorority National President, shared, “This day of emphasis is us joining hands with one another to make a difference in the lives of people around the world.”
