The Epsilon Omega Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc., along with the Orangeburg County Department of Social Services, the school counseling department at Orangeburg-Wilkinson High School and the Orangeburg Consolidated School District 5 Office of Federal Programs and Student Services, distributed Thanksgiving baskets to less fortunate families in the community on Nov. 20.
Each basket contained a full Thanksgiving meal that included a turkey, ham and side dishes.
“Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. strives to make a positive impact on communities. There are people in need in the Orangeburg area, and this outreach helped out a number of families who would not have been able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal,” said Jamie Brunson, president of the Epsilon Omega Chapter.
In addition to giving baskets to the community, the Epsilon Omega Chapter celebrated its 2018 Achievement Week Nov. 11-17 with various activities for college students and the Orangeburg community, including an anti-hazing workshop, a campus and community health fair, a talent hunt program, a canned food drive and a Founders’ Banquet.
“On behalf of the Epsilon Omega Chapter, I would like to thank everyone who participated in our Achievement Week activities,” Brunson said. “Omega Psi Phi Fraternity has been leading the way in communities for 107 years and will continue to lead in the Orangeburg community through our principles of manhood, scholarship, perseverance and uplift.”
