The ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. are giving back.
Saturday the organization hosted its annual North Louisiana Cluster Conference in Shreveport.
The sorority focused its service project on ‘Soles for Souls’. It’s a foundation that provides shoes for the less fortunate.
Different chapters of the sorority in North Louisiana collected nearly 1,700 pairs of shoes to donate.
Katina Semien the South Central Regional Director for Alpha Kappa Alpha says,”We strive to do one thing and that is to be of service, and of service to all mankind. If we are not giving, we are not on our job and so we try to give as much of ourselves to others as much as we can.”
The ladies also collected more than 323 pairs of eye glasses that will be donated to the Lions Club International, who repairs and adds prescription lenses, that will be given back to people in the community.
