Alpha Kappa Alpha Members Secure The Bags For Atlanta Unhoused

Atlanta members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. helped pack bags with toiletries and other items for the city’s unhoused women.

Members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. (AKA) are giving back to their community by packing purses for those in need. A local chapter partnered with Atlanta Housing on Jan. 19 to help unhoused women during the winter season. 

According to 11Alive, the sorority worked with the housing authority, packing used handbags with toiletries and essential supplies. Exactly 145 purses were filled with goods to provide some aid and hope during the cold months. 

The event followed the National Day of Service, recognized on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, in which service organizations nationwide volunteered their efforts to better communities. This charitable initiative seeks to specifically address an ongoing issue regarding homelessness in the United States, with the international sorority committed to benefitting all mankind in various ways.

Their work here is needed as Atlanta, along with other areas across the country, has faced rising rates of unhoused individuals and families. To support an influx of those sleeping inside their facility, Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport has been urged by city officials to develop a plan to assist the scores of people utilizing the building as a shelter.
