This is the 6th year for the collaboration.

During our two hours, we greeted and served food and drinks to 390 adults and children. If there were clients with disabilities or small children we took the food and drinks to them. We make a monthly charitable contribution of $50. Sorors enjoy fellow-shipping with the clients, staff, and each other.
Gwen Thomas, South Central Region Cluster Representative
Gamma Eta Omega Chapter launched its program initiative aimed at addressing global poverty. For the first quarter of 2013, members concentrated on making dresses for girls in the country of Liberia. Noticing the need for basic essentials, such as clothing, members made over 100 dresses from pillowcases. We partnered with apparel and merchandising majors and textile majors of Southern University, also members of the Beta Psi Chapter. Financial donations, pillowcases, trimming and other materials were collected at meetings. This project was a success with sorors as they were able to use their sewing skills and provide tips to the younger sorors.
