The Phi Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, has kicked off fall in a big way. The highlight activity in the month of October was their hosting the Northern Carolina Cluster for its regional area. The Mid-Atlantic Regional Director Jennifer King Congleton joined members of the chapter on the campus of Winston-Salem State University to lead a day of learning and sisterly fellowship. WSSU Chancellor Dr. Elwood Robinson met the regional director and the Northern Carolina Cluster Coordinator Phaedra Grove and then brought greetings to the entire assembly. The hybrid in-person and Zoom session was attended by over 600 members of the sorority.  

During the months of August and September, Phi Omega members distributed face masks, clothing, kitchen supplies, and generous donations to various non-profits in the community. Chapter members supported HBCU Week and sponsored its signature event, The Community Collective, a series of days when Phi Omega promotes excellence in our community. Public forums were held online with topics of community awareness with law enforcement and mental health; live storytelling for children; estate planning; HBCU Strong; and jazz. Free financial literacy webinars for the public were also offered.

During October the chapter hosted healthy fitness walks in city parks and held a mobile mammogram screening day at Ivy Arms Apartments in conjunction with Novant Health. October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month as well as Cybersecurity Awareness Month.  

Phi Omega Chapter continues to recognize African American-owned businesses in Winston-Salem. A few that were highlighted this fall included a dentist, a restauranteur, a barber, a fitness instructor, an optometrist, among many others.

Phi Omega is going into the holiday season with two fundraisers to help with awarding scholarships in our community. The chapter is truly busy and not slowing down during the pandemic. We are striving to serve our community and help others while practicing safety protocols.
