Pasadena Chapter of AKA Makes a Difference on MLK Day

Black news from Pasadena - Community News - Pasadena AKA makes a difference

Members of the Pasadena Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. deliver meals to veterans at the Altadena Senior Center in Altadena, CA.

The Pasadena Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. (AKA) spent January 20th, MLK Day making a difference around the Pasadena/ Altadena area.

They started the day providing Sunday Supper to WWII, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Kuwait and Gulf War Veterans. They also serviced families with children who have a parent who is incarcerated. The organization teamed with the NAACP/Altadena Branch, the Altadena Senior Center, and Angel Tree Network's Prison Fellowship to make a difference by providing bags of food and gift cards to 17 veterans and 18 children with a parent in prison. By donating groceries, these thankful families will eat on Sunday and all week long - just like an old fashioned Sunday Supper.

These organizations provided the basic needs to Veterans, military families and children. Man cannot think about employment and/or education when their primal needs are not met. This project provided sustenance and a means of livelihood.

Alpha Kappa Alpha ladies of Eta Lambda Omega Chapter of Pasadena make a delivery of coats and blankets to Union Station Homeless Shelter in Pasadena, CA, on MLK Day of Service.

The members of the Pasadena Chapter of AKA moved onto Union Station. Union Station provides a full continuum of care to help our homeless community members become stable and self-sufficient. In order to support Union Station's programs, the women of AKA delivered coats and blankets that will be given to individuals and families that are a part of the Union Station family.

Union Station is a 501(c)3 foundation whose programs give homeless families and individuals everything they need from the time they walk through their doors until they have keys to their own apartment. The coats and blankets donated by AKA assist them in this endeavor.

The women of the Pasadena Chapter of AKA take pride in making a difference in the community that we have the privilege of serving. By giving back on MLK Day, the chapter joined the country in celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through a Day of Service.
