The brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha are putting their money where their mouth is when it comes to supporting families during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The fraternity recently announced that it will be donating $25,000 to organizations, who are helping families make ends meet during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
According to the press release, the board of directors of Alpha Phi Alpha have voted to earmark $5,000 to organizations in each of the Fraternity’s Eastern, Midwestern, Southern, Southwestern, and Western regions that provide families with food and assistance.
“Families, particularly those in the communities we serve, are struggling to feed their families and pay their bills as a result of the coronavirus pandemic,” said General President Everett B. Ward, Ph.D. “It is incumbent upon Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and other organizations to support those who are providing direct aid to those affected.”
“Aside from these donations, the Fraternity has been actively pursuing ways to help those hardest hit, including advocating for testing and more resources for those disproportionately affected through our COVID-19 Taskforce, comprised of Alpha public health experts and researchers,” he said.
“Over the past five weeks, a record 26 million Americans filed for unemployment benefits and an increasing number of families are depending on food banks to feed their families,” the press release that the fraternity released stated.
