Last month, the women of Sigma Sigma Sigma, a University of Wisconsin- Oshkosh sorority, delivered approximately 150 stuffed animals to the surgical department at Aurora Medical Center in Oshkosh.
The women delivered animals big and small that ranged from anteaters to zebras. “For our youngest patients, surgery can be especially stressful,” said Kathleen Krause, RN at Aurora Medical Center in Oshkosh. “Having a new stuffed animal to hold often lessens the anxiety and fear. We are absolutely thrilled to be the recipients of this gift.”
“The children having surgery will definitely feel that love when they squeeze their new stuffed animals,” added Krause. “Thank-you Sigma Sigma Sigma.”
Sigma Sigma Sigma (also known as Tri-Sigma), is a national sorority with more than 100,000 members in more than 110 college campus chapters, and 89 alumnae chapters throughout the world. Started in the 1890’s, Tri-Sigma is a sorority whose vision is to inspire exceptional lifelong learning and friendships, and promotes its core values of wisdom, power, hope and love.
