FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MILWAUKEE – August 17, 2014 - The Kappa Phi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. proudly presents the 4th Annual Louie M. Adams Back to School Educational Fair.
The men of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated, Kappa Phi Chapter recognize the need for positive role models in each and every community. As a result, we are dedicating our time and efforts to help the youth in our communities.
The event will begin at 10am, on North 2nd St. between W. Center and W. Clarke Streets. It is our goal to equip students with the basic necessities in order to become productive in the classroom. In 2013, we were able to donate 612 book bags filled with supplies. In addition, we were able to feed 880 guests and provided haircuts to 120 young men. The primary target zip code area was 53212 and 53205 zip codes in Milwaukee. Statistics show that the two zip codes serviced, which consist of 22,708 residents, 48.3% are living below the poverty line. It is not only our duty, it is our responsibility to support our youth.
During this year’s affair, we expect to have an even stronger impact on our community. This year we have increased the number of educational booths as well as increased our overall distribution of school supplies. Our keynote speaker for the event will be District 2 County Supervisor, Khalif Rainey. In addition, we will also have a return visit from the Milwaukee Tumblers, US Colored Troop F-29th Infantry Regiment, Milwaukee Fire Department, Milwaukee Health Department, and many, many, more surprises.
Event Co-Chair Marcel A. Clarke shares, “The Louie M. Adams Back to School Educational Fair is a platform for displaying the importance education. Additionally, this event gives our students an opportunity to begin the school year of with the necessary essentials for a productive school year and a sense of confidence”.
