On November 21, 2019, the men of Psi Alpha Alpha (PsiAA) Chapter, Third District, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. joined and was honored to answer the call for service to being invited by Gum Springs to participate in the Community Thanksgiving Dinner. The event was held at the Gum Springs Community Center in the gym. The men of PsiAA provided support to the event by preparing meal plates and delivery to the table for the guests, participating at the dessert serving station, and clean-up (rolling up table and stacking chairs, etc.).
The goal for this worthwhile event was to uplift, support the community, and allow the community to share and enjoy in a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Various community leaders were present to include but not limited to Debra Graves-Sanders (Gum Springs Community Advisory Board). The event was well attended by more than 100 community leaders, youth, and residents.
General feedback from the guests and some staff was while the meal was excellent, it was the thoughtfulness and care of strangers who were volunteering their time, which conveyed the true spirit of the season.
