Groups unite to hold hunger drive

Make It Happen, Student Ambassadors and Empowered Women at Southside Virginia Community College and Saint Paul’s Memorial Chapel joined Alpha Kappa Alpha’s Gamma Lambda Omega chapter of Lawrenceville to collect healthy snacks for hungry children through a childhood hunger drive recently. The partnership raised over 1,600 items and created 321 bags to donate to Brunswick Department of Social Services and Greensville Department of Social Services to distribute to children.
