Phi Omega, Winston-Salem, NC made soup to feed the homeless and had a clothing giveaway.

Zeta Mu Omega Chapter, Gastonia, NC - Fifty + year members Geraldine Dye and Ina Hager prepare breakfast for the 22nd Annual MLK Day Breakfast held at Bynum Chapel AME Zion Church, Kings Mountain, NC. Thirty-one other members helped serve the food or assisted in other ways.

Rho Eta Omega joined Rho Iota Lambda of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc, Hashtaglunchbag, and The Life Church to bag and deliver over 2500 lunches to Richmond, VA homeless population. In addition, toiletry kits were made.

Omicron Omega Omega chapter collected blankets and nonperishable food items to donate to the Sandhills Moore Coalition for Human Care.

For Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, members of Gamma Upsilon Omega accepted the "MLK challenge" by partnering with SAME (So All May Eat), HELP (Hampton Roads Ecumenical Lodgings and Provisions, Inc.) and Hampton Baptist Church. Members assisted with food preparation, serving, clothing closet distributions and distributing toiletries to those in need. Once a task was completed, members were able to tape the challenge card on the banner.

In honor of MLK day of service, Chi Rho Omega hosted two service events.

Members along with family and friends, participated in the 40th Annual MLK Memorial March at the State Capital Building, while other members participated at the Triangle MLK Day of Service hosted at the Alexander Family YMCA.

Members of Iota Omega Chapter partnered with the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore in order to provide service to this valuable community resource. Chapter members sorted food donations and organized the food pantry, proving the day as a "day on, not a day off!

What a way for the lovely ladies of the Kappa Iota Omega Chapter of AKA to honor the legacy of the late Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr. than to serve the communities they live in. We were honored to distribute food, blankets, and snacks to the Roanoke Rapids Dialysis Center, Roanoke Rapids, NC.
