All Member Program
Save the date for the first all member program of the year on January 26, 2021 at 8 p.m. ET. The program, “It’s Okay Not to be Okay,” will focus on understanding and identifying mental health struggles. It will be presented by Archie Messersmith-Bunting and is sponsored by the SDT Foundation.
Thank You!
The SDT Foundation is delighted to announce the One Hope Fund reached our 2020 fundraising goal! Your generosity will make hardship grants a reality for sisters in the coming months. Thank you!

There will be a continued need to replenish this fund as sisters need assistance. If you would like to contribute and receive a One Hope face mask, while supplies last, we invite you to give online.
