The local chapter of a national fraternity has been giving back to their community year-round. On Wednesday, Nov. 14, the office of the Hinesville Mayor presented a proclamation to Beta Gamma Gamma Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, for its numerous social service projects. The presentation took place while donations were made to Hinesville Community Development before Thanksgiving. This award is one of the chapter’s greatest recognitions for years of community service in the Hinesville-Fort Stewart area.
The chapter has been involved in an annual back-to-school bookbag giveaway, with Hinehouse. Members have participated in an annual blood drive, partnered with the Liberty County School System to assist with a field day for children with disabilities, gotten involved in Relay for Life and a toys giveaway during the winter holidays.
The chapter has also partnered with the Hinesville Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theata Sorority on a mental health forum and given out college scholarships to deserving Bradwell Institute and Liberty County High School seniors.
Chapter members have also participated in a talent hunt program, judged and provided trophies to the Hinesville Dr. Martin Luther King Day Parade for best floats, and donated items and money to a local shelter for survivors of domestic violence.
