Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Baltimore City Chapter, Epsilon Omega, visited two Pre-K classes at St. Jerome Head Start in West Baltimore on December 18 and 19, 2013 to present three and four-year-old students with toys, hats, gloves and other special treats. The women of Epsilon Omega donated items at November and December chapter meetings for students enrolled in the program.
Program Chair AnnaMaria Joyner said: “We do this because we want as many children as possible to have a happy and warm holiday season. Children are our true jewels, and we should do everything possible to make their lives better.”
More than 350 toys, hats and gloves were collected. Items not presented to the children directly were donated to St. Vincent’s Villa for their annual holiday party.
Since the chapter founding in 1922, it has been involved in countless community service projects in the Baltimore community.
