The brothers of Kappa Alpha Psi in California are doing some powerful work to prepare young men who emancipated with the things they need to succeed as young adults.
The men of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated are well known across US College campuses as being debonair, well dressed and stylish and it’s a designation Kappa men are all too happy to hold on to long after their college days are done.
It comes to no surprise that the Carlsbad Laguna Temecula (CA) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi in partnership with The City of Hope International Church in San Diego and New Birth Church in Temecula, both pastored by Kappas, hosted a Suits for our Sons Clothing drive.
Fraternity brothers were able to collect and donate over 75 suits, 50 dress shirts and slacks, 47 ties, 20 pair of shoes, 16 sports coats an various other clothing items to the Just in Time Foster Youth Program, San Diego Urban League and San Diego Rescue Mission Dress for Success Programs. These programs give young men and women a chance at making a first great impression.
The initial aim and goal of the suit drive began a suit giveaway for Jitfosteryouth.org to help transition-age foster youth, ages 18-26, achieve self-sufficiency and well-being through their Bridges to Success program giving young men clothing and confidence they need to prepare for job interviews.
However, as donations began to pour and space running low the Carlsbad Laguna Temecula Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc looked to other community service programs in need of professional attire.
“We decided to take on this community service project because we realized that many young men do not have the attire to go on job interviews and simply present themselves as men who are employable,” Kappa Alpha Psi member and Community Service Organizer said, “the Bridge to Success as well as the other service organizations does an incredible job of preparing these young men to make that transition and we just thought it was fitting to aide them and do our part in ensuring that our young men are ready to go into the work force and dressed accordingly.”
Earlier this year, the Carlsbad Laguna Temecula Alumni Chapter was featured on Watch The Yard for fully furnishing the apartments of recently emancipated foster youth in California.
This is community work that we can all stand behind. We at Watch The Yard would like to commend these brothers for doing such powerful service. To donate or for more information on future community related events contact email@example.com.
