Gamma Sigma Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. & Salvation Army Partner to Support MLK Day of Service


According to the challenging words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ Gamma Omega Chapter (GSO) of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. continues to answer that question by partnering with various agencies in the Savannah Community to serve individuals and families. Since observation services for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. started 41 years ago in Savannah, the day has been about service and giving back to others. On January 20, 2020, GSO chose to partner with the Salvation Army Thrift Store located at 3100 Montgomery Street. The Thrift Store offers discounted clothing and household items for persons who may need low cost options. The store receives donated items from the community that needs to be sorted and prepared for resale in the store. GSO members worked with Salvation Army staff in organizing the food pantry division. The pantry receives food donations from the community, and food needs to be organized so staff can readily access items. GSO members stocked shelved items for easy accessibility. Places such as the Salvation Army Thrift Store provide services and goods for individuals and families who would be without in times of need. The mission of the Salvation Army since its inception in the late 1800’s has been to provide assistance, guidance and encouragement for those in need.
