The Standard Journal - - LIFESTYLE - From press re­lease

The Hope House in Cartersville, Ge­or­gia was re­cently the bene­fac­tor of 18 blan­kets, 26 throws and dozens of toi­letries, com­pli­ments of the Theta Omi­cron Omega Chap­ter of Al­pha Kappa Al­pha Soror­ity, Inc. The do­na­tion was part of the soror­ity’s In­ter­na­tional Pro­gram Tar­get III: Build­ing Your Eco­nomic Legacy.

This ini­tia­tive will fo­cus on im­ple­ment­ing pro­grams to as­sist those in need in var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ties by di­rect­ing at­ten­tion to the plight of the home­less, in­clud­ing home­less chil­dren, and home­less vet­er­ans. The pro­gram theme for 2018-2022 is Ex­em­pli­fy­ing Ex­cel­lence Through Sus­tain­able Ser­vice.

The In­ter­na­tional Pro­gram in­cludes five pro­gram tar­gets that are de­signed to ad­vance the mis­sion of Al­pha Kappa Al­pha with ex­cel­lence and un­der­score our com­mit­ment to sus­tain­able ser­vice.

Al­pha Kappa Al­pha Soror­ity, In­cor­po­rated® is ded­i­cated to im­ple­ment­ing pro­grams of ser­vice that en­hance the so­cial, eco­nomic, and ed­u­ca­tional well- be­ing of the lo­cal, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional com­mu­ni­ties.

Pro­grams re­main the heart of AKA. The size and scope of ser­vices pro­vided to our com­mu­ni­ties have grown and sig­nif­i­cantly im­proved the qual­ity of life for all who re­side within our ser­vice ar­eas.

The spec­tac­u­lar women of TOO are com­mit­ted to ex­e­cut­ing the In­ter­na­tional Pro­grams of ser­vice es­tab­lished by our 30th In­ter­na­tional Pres­i­dent, Dr. Glenda Glover.

The Theta Omi­cron Omega chap­ter en­com­passes Bar­tow, Floyd, Polk and Car­roll coun­ties and has more than 70 mem­bers.

“We were de­lighted to make a do­na­tion to such a wor­thy cause – The Hope House, which was founded by Mr. Don­ald Strick­land” said Mrs. Sherry Turner, Pres­i­dent of the chap­ter. “Many cit­i­zens are only a pay check or two away from need­ing the ser­vices of fa­cil­i­ties such as The Hope House. We hope that our do­na­tion will make the lives of the clients of the Hope House a lit­tle bet­ter”.
