The Brothers of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity,Inc. fulfilled a lot of work for the community as a day of service on Martin Luther King's Birthday.
From 10am to NOON the Brothers along with the ladies of Sigma Lambda Upsilon Sorority Inc. went to talk to and play games with a group of twenty-five youths at Martin Luther King Towers Community Center in Harlem. It was a wonderful event and the kids were really excited.
After that we hosted a MLK Book Drive Brunch Event at Rowhouse Restaurant in Harlem. About one hundred people came during the course of the afternoon to support with donating books. We collected over three hundred books that will be distributed to King Towers Community Center, Blake Ansari Library for the Homeless, Eagle Academy, Park Slope Women's Shelter, Harlem Childrens Zone Centers, Mott Haven Community High School and other places. In total for Kappa Omicron's Book Drive we have collected over 30,000 Books.
The guest speakers of the event were NYC Mayorial Candidate Akeem Browder and Blake Ansari. They both shared words of the impact and inspiration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. . It was a wonderful day of UPLIFT by the Brothers on that beloved day of service.
