    Sponsor a family

    The Alpha Zeta Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi adopts a family every year through the Los Alamos school system.  They solicit the school counselors to identify needy LA families and give them an Adopt a Family “application.”
    Beta Sigma Phi then goes out in the community and asks other families and businesses to sponsor the families. The sponsors provide each member of the family with one gift (listed on the application) and a Smith’s giftcard (in the amount of $25 per family member) to buy food for a Christmas dinner.
