This will be our fourth day of giving and over the years, this day has transformed into a celebration of Phi Mu sisterhood! Sisters from across the country will join us on social media to share stories of how Phi Mu has impacted their lives and why it’s important to give back to the Foundation and help preserve the Phi Mu experience for generations to come.
