Did you know that one out of every four children in Georgia lives in food insecure household? Gamma Sigma Omega (GSO) Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated under the leadership of S. Renee Grant has targeted this critical issue facing many local families through donations and awareness. Through its Family Strengthening Program’s Childhood Hunger Initiative, GSO seeks to partner with local organizations such as Blessing in a Book Bag, Incorporated to address issues such as lack of food, shelter, and financial means.

Blessings in a Book Bag, Incorporated, a local community program providing non-perishable food on the weekends to children in need, was founded by Weslyn “Lady Mahogany” Bowers. Donations are accepted Monday through Friday. GSO encourages donating or volunteering your time to Blessings in a Book Bag by calling (912) 436- 9094 or by visiting www.blessingsinabookbag.org.
