Winter is cold and if you are one of the large amount of Americans who does not have a home, it can become unbearable.
On Saturday, January 20th, the Gamma Kappa Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. at Miles College teamed up to give clothing and blankets to the less fortunate at Linn Park in Birmingham, Alabama. As the winter season proves to be unforgivingly cold, members of the fraternity saw a demand to help the homeless and make sure that they were warm.
“‘Servants of all,’ a major component of the fraternities motto, and the driving factor in how Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. plans to remain an active tool in improving their communities,” one of the brothers wrote Watch The Yard.
Watch the video below to see what they did and how they did it.
Does your chapter have something planned to help people who are homeless deal with the cold? If not, this might be something where you could make an immediate impact.
