BELLE GLADE — In support of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated Target 5 Global Impact initiative, the Mu Rho Omega Chapter were able to collect 450+ items and donated to the following organizations.
Mu Rho Omega was able to donate through our corporate partner Soles4Souls a total of 256 pairs of new or gently worn shoes. By donating these shoes, it helped to save tens of thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide emissions released when new shoes are manufactured. These same 256 pairs of shoes can provide food, shelter or education for countries such as Haiti a couple of months. Soles 4 Souls, a non-profit organization, will process and ship shoes to destinations around the world populated with people of color.
Mu Rho Omega also coordinated with our AKA partner Lion’s Club to help decrease blindness, help restore eye site and help improve health and eyecare for thousands of people around the world by donating 219 pairs of new and gently used glasses. Mu Rho Omega also donated a total of 48 pillow case tshirts to provide clothing for children in other countries.
Mu Rho Omega would like to thank the community for their continued support. Special thanks is also extended to the Global Impact Committee Chairman, Lorraine Moreland and Co-Chairman Valerie Moreland as well as the committee members.
