The Tampa Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi and their young mentor group, the Kappa League, volunteered with Metropolitan Ministries to help those less fortunate have a brighter holiday season.
TAMPA – The holiday season is filled with joy and happiness for many. Yet, this time of year is also tough on community members in need of assistance.
The Tampa Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi and their young mentor group, the Kappa League, aim to make the holiday season brighter for those in need by volunteering with Metropolitan Ministries. The young men pitched in and helped set up the ministry’s holiday tents and food boxes.
“We have always supported Metropolitan Ministries in various events,” said Tampa Alumni Polemarch Collis Ivery III. “We feel it’s critical to give back to the community and help those in need, especially during this time of the year.”
Metropolitan Ministries is a charitable organization that assists the homeless, providing food, shelter, and self-sufficient programs.
For the Kappa League, the ministry helps provide the young men, who ranged from sixth to the 12th grade, an opportunity to understand the importance of servicing the community.
“It was important for the Kappa Leaguers to be there to get an understanding of what it means to give back to the community,” said Tampa Alumni Kappa League Director Andre Saunders. “It’s a blessing to be a blessing.”
