The Global Impact Target is designed to enhance the international footprint of the sorority by focusing on global issues. There are three major components: National Global Impact Day, Global Assistance Activities, and the Refugees in America Assistance Program (RAAP).
On National Global Impact Day, which is celebrated the 2nd Tuesday in April, Tau Nu Omega presented a resolution to adopt at least one family substantially impacted by COVID-19. Therefore, Tau Nu Omega will support a local family through 2022.
Through Global Assistance Activities, Tau Nu Omega partners with international organizations to provide aid to underserved areas. There are three partnerships that we participate in throughout our community:
1. Soles 4 Souls: Tau Nu Omega has partnered with the South Bronx community, and its chapter membership to collect hundreds of shoes and sneakers.
2. The Lions Club: Tau Nu Omega encourages chapter members and the South Bronx community to donate unused eyeglasses to help prevent blindness, help restore eyesight, and improve eye health and eye care throughout the world.
3. The Pillowcase Project focuses on turning pillowcases into dresses and shirts for little girls and boys in Haiti. Through a "Sip n' Sew" activity, chapter members received guidance and instruction from a seamstress on cutting out shirt patterns. Tau Nu Omega is committed to sewing at least 200 shirts and dresses by the end of 2021.
Finally, RAAP allows the chapter to focus on refugees of color in the United States by partnering with organizations engaged in support activities that assist refugees and their families in integrating into American life. Tau Nu Omega will focus on families impacted by the Global Pandemic.
