The Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service is one of six Impact Days for Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.
This year, Nu Delta Omega Chapter members and members of the newly chartered undergraduate chapter, Upsilon Delta, University of South Carolina-Beaufort, rolled up their sleeves to clean the surroundings of a home occupied by a disabled resident and other sections of Wilmington Street in Beaufort.
They raked, cleaned, picked up and bagged over 40 bags of litter as neighbors helping neighbors.
Ms. Simmons, the recipient of a portion of the service on MLK Day, surprised the group and showed her appreciation by having grilled hot dogs and hamburgers with all the fixings prepared for the participants.
Prior to the service, both chapters participated in Beaufort’s annual MLK Day Parade. Nu Delta Omega has participated in the parade and other scheduled events for MLK Day since the celebration started many years ago.
