Bronx Alumnae & Collegiates Team Up to Serve at Soup Kitchen


Submitted by Kristina Blackwood

On February 22, 2020, in celebration of Collegiate Connection Month, members of the Bronx Alumnae Chapter and four collegiate chapter members from Epsilon Tau Chapter, Rho Chapter, and Mu Gamma Chapter, volunteered at the St. Andrew’s Soup Kitchen in the Bronx, N.Y. The St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church serves the community every second and fourth Saturday of the month, in which Bronx Alumnae Chapter members consistently volunteer.


The day started by setting up tables and chairs while members still found a moment to fellowship with one another. A Rho Chapter member had such joy teaching a Bronx Alumnae Chapter member a quick stroll before the serving commenced.

As the people arrived, members prepared for their shifts and put on hairnets, aprons and gloves. More than 110 people came in from the cold to be served a hot cup of lentil soup, and a home cooked meal which included roasted chicken, herb potatoes, salad, and of course tasty dessert. Each collegiate and alumnae chapter member was assigned a table and swiftly served with a smile! One community participant shared that he was “pleased with the quickness and that he had no complaints!” It was a joyous day of sisterhood and service!

Other Collegiate Connection activities that were sponsored by the Bronx Alumnae Chapter during the month of February included, a social media campaign informing collegiates of the importance of transitioning to an alumnae chapter, and hosting the President of Rho Chapter and the National Collegiate Connection Chair, Louisa Tatum, during February’s Chapter Meeting.

The Bronx Alumnae Chapter looks forward to continuing to collaborate with collegiate chapters throughout the sorority year, as well as giving back to the community with service in our hearts!
