Nu Chi Omega: 105 — cans, dollars, years
In recognition of National Canned Food Month, members the Nu Chi Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority set a goal to donate 105 canned good items to the Area Congregations in Ministry organization in Oxford. The number settled on was chosen in observance of the sorority’s 105 years of service. Chapter members — including (from left) Jackie Harris, LaRhonda Harris, Dorothy Perry, Carolyn White, Vivian Bullock, Toni Rankin-Green, Phyllis Williams and Dianne Evans — exceeded their goal by donating 137 canned food items. In addition, a check in the amount of $105 was also donated. Addressing global poverty is one of the sorority’s national program initiatives. The organization provides support and assistance to community members in need.
