The Kappa Omicron Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. recently donated $5,000 to five community food pantries in the city.

While working in conjunction with several community-oriented organizations, such as the Black Veterans for Social Justice, the Omegas addressed the immediate needs of the communities’ less fortunate.

The Five Boroughs Food Drive was founded by chapter members Thomas Wallace and Ray Haskins. Since its inception, in 2009, shelters have been provided with significant amounts of food and groceries. Substantial monetary assistance has also been given to organizations who serve these citizens in need such as five different food pantries found throughout the five boroughs.

Through donations, the chapter’s Five Borough Food Drive has provided over $37,000 in assistance to these communities in need.
