Omegas and Dons to collect Thanksgiving Eve

The members of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., Alpha Kappa Kappa Chapter, and the members of the I. U. Dons, Inc. will join forces to collect for the needy on Wednesday, Thanksgiving Eve, November 24 in two Gary stores.

The Omegas will volunteer at Save More Foods, 9th & Broadway and the Dons will collect donations in Fresh County Market from 8a.m. to 8p.m. Monies collected will give a boost to the I. U. Dons, Inc. 52nd Annual Penny-A-Ton Drive. The idea of the drive is to collect 300,000 pennies which is equivalent to $3,000. The proceeds will be used to provide clothes, food, and toys to those in need during the Christmas season.

Recipients will be identified by social workers in the Gary schools.

Dr. Vernon G. Smith, Dons’ President asks that people give generously. He noted that the need is great this year. Persons in need should contact the social worker at the school where their children attend. The Dons do not take direct referrals from those in need, Smith said.
