The Brothers of the Iota Pi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. have donated more than 50,000 sheets of paper to two adopted local elementary schools.
Cutler Ridge and Ethel Beckford Elementary Schools, were selected from both community and fraternal recommendations.
Due in part to fiscal constraints in the school system, many funding resources for basic supplies have been cut. In addition to copy paper, the chapter also donated bookbags, pencils, folders, and related supplies.
DonationsÂ were received from the University of Miami William R. Butler Center for Volunteer Service and Leadership Development, Costco, BJâ€™s, and Seminole Chapter #10 OES P.H.A. during the chapterâ€™s collection drive.
As a result the chapter was able to donate nearly $1,000 in school supplies and supplemental resources to support students and educators at the adopted schools. At left, brothers from the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity chapter present the donations to teachers at Cutler Ridge Elementary.
