Brothers from the Metro Washington.D.C region are being called into action to put Uplift on display this Thanksgiving by participating in the annual WHUR "FOOD2FEED" Thanksgiving Food Drive.
Gamma Pi chapter, in Prince George's County, is looking to lead the way by inviting its members as well as members of area chapters to join at the event on Thursday, November 17, at the Old Post Office Pavilion on Constitution Avenue, from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. WHUR personality Renee Nash will be on hand and on-air during the 12-hour event and is preparing to give the Fraternity a special "shout out"during the day for bringing "Que Manpower" to the event.
"This event is a major factor in ensuring that our less fortunate citizens are able to enjoy a holiday meal during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season," said Bro. Terry Rogers, Social Action Co-Chair for the chapter, which was chartered in the county in 1973. Bro. Rogers and Co-Chair Bro. Keith Keemer are already recruiting Gamma Pi members to get involved.
The event will serve as a symbolic way for Omega men to observe the 100th by engaging in a real-life service project honoring the Four Cardinal Principles just prior to participate in the evening Rededication program to be held at Howard University, where Omega Psi Phi was founded.
Members of Gamma Pi or other chapters who are interested in participating should contact Brother Terry Rogers via e-mail. Want to get a feel for what working with FOOD2FEED is like? Catch these video highlights from the 2010 project.
