Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Xi Omega Omega Chapter recently participated in their annual “MLK Day of Service” Project. This year the chapter’s focus was on childhood hunger awareness initiatives and addressing the increasing number of households that do not have the financial resources to adequately feed their family. On Monday, January 16, 2017, Xi Omega Omega members along with the 2017 Debutantes assembled over 100 “snack bags”. Each bag was packed with non-perishable food items such as Vienna sausages, Capri-suns, cheese and crackers, Beefaroni, fruit snacks, boxed cereal, etc. The weekend “snack bags” will be provided to select students attending St. George Middle School to take home on a weekly basis for a total of four weeks. Distributions will begin on January 20th. Four Xi Omega Omega members (Joyce Davis, Vennie Mitchell, Saundria Washington, and Sylvia Williams) are also DD4 employees.
