International line and chapter trips are becoming a big trend in Black greekdom but these women of Alpha Kappa Alpha are doing something that a lot of other trips are missing — community service.
The ladies of who were initiated through Gamma Kappa Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. at Tuskegee University in the Spring of 1992 recently celebrated their 25th AKAversary in Costa Rica.
Twenty-two of their 34 line sisters were able to make the trip and while they got to experience the Pura Vida and do an AMAZING line photoshoot, they also kept up their sorority’s mission and gave back to the community where they were having fun.
The ladies showed up at a local library and dropped off school supplies and books for kids.
“We always take time to celebrate each other and do our part to improve the community where celebrate,” LaTarsha Mills-McKie told Watch The Yard.
This may be a small act but it means a lot and is something that every Black fraternity and sorority line, chapter or group of brothers/sisters should do when they travel or road trip — show up with something in hand to improve the community.
Share this on Facebook if you agree that more chapters and lines should do things like this when they travel.
