On September 15, 2020, the Psi Alpha Alpha Chapter, Third District of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. and the Bernie L. Bates Foundation, Inc., have joined forces to make a positive impact on the First Responders in Fairfax, County, Virginia, as a result of COVID-19. The Chapter’s Basileus (Brother Eric Kelly, Sr.) and the Foundation’s President (Brother Richard Morris) donated the fifth of five monthly contributions to Rx Catering – DC Metro. The fifth check for $1,000.00 was presented to Ms. Cheron Burns, owner, of Rx Catering at Greenspring Continuing Care Retirement Community, Springfield, Virginia. At the same event, Rx Catering donated 125 meals to Ms. Chandra Kumar, Executive Director of the Garden Ridge Complex for the nurses, staff, and residents. Other Chapter and Foundation attendees were Brothers W.J. Williams, Jr., Marvin Chisolm, and Kenneth Younger. As this joint COVID-19 effort comes to an end, we look forward to similar support in the coming fiscal year.
