Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. (AKA) is an international organization that has assumed its rightful place as a global citizen. Today, its members around the world join in observing Global Impact Day, which focuses on AKA’s service footprint beyond local and national borders by affirming its credo: “[t]o be supreme in service to all mankind.” Our members support the sorority’s partnership with Soles4Souls.

By donating shoes to Soles4Souls, members not only enable children to walk to school and adults to walk to work, but it also enables others to see the profound impact donating a single pair of shoes can have in disrupting the cycle of poverty for those in need. AKA is continuously challenged by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s question after he reminded us: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

Here in the St. Thomas-St. John district, members of Sigma Theta Omega Graduate Chapter and Rho Omicron Undergraduate Chapter at the University of the Virgin Islands donated shoes, clothes, toiletries and food items to Anya Stuart, interim executive director and the staff members of the Family Resource Center on St. Thomas.
