Loudoun County, VA — The Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., Sigma Mu Mu Chapter, is doing its part to ensure that children in need have school supplies. On August 5, 2017, Sigma Mu Mu held its 4th Annual Back-2-School Supply Drive at the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Sterling, Virginia. Patrons purchased several items in Wal-Mart, including notebooks, pens, pencils and folders. The support and generosity of the local community enabled Sigma Mu Mu to collect over 500 pounds of various items, including 27 backpacks. In addition to school supplies, cash donations were given and were used to buy more supplies. This service project was the result of a partnership between Sigma Mu Mu and Help for Other Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable institution, to collect basic school supplies for Loudoun County elementary and middle schools. The donated supplies were delivered to Ms. Gloria Mpofu, the coordinator of the organization. She was very appreciative of the effort, energy and enthusiasm of the brothers.
Sigma Mu Mu’s participation in such a worthy cause highlights its commitment to serving the Loudoun County community. The Back-2-School Drive helped level the “academic” playing field so that the children can focus on academic success, and be better prepared for learning.
