Psi Alpha Alpha Omega Men ⇑
On April 6, 2019, the men of Psi Alpha Alpha (PsiAA) Chapter, Third District, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. met to perform our first Adopt-A- Highway event of the year. Over the past several years, our chapter has collaborated with the Fairfax County Department of Transportation to help clean up litter along Alban Road in Springfield, VA. Each year, nearly 18,000 Adopt-a-Highway volunteers collect more than 25,600 bags of waste along Virginia’s highways. The state of Virginia estimates that our assistance contributes to saving the commonwealth over $1.34 million that would have otherwise gone to clean up Virginia’s roads.
Saturday’s cleanup was extensive, as over 15 brothers with 5 civilian volunteers came out to support this important initiative. All told, we collected 25 bags of trash and debris. Based on the county’s calculation methodology of (Hours X participants), this equates to 50 work hours of community service. Additionally, this year’s April event was significant in that it coincided with Earth Day, which happens during the month of April. As the chairperson, I want to thank all that came out to support. Lastly, as a chapter, we hope that our efforts to uplift the community through the support of this important community initiative, continues to have a lasting and positive impact on our community as a whole.
