Members of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority today are giving back to students in the area.
More than 500 members of AKA’s Alabama Statewide Cluster gathered to donate hundreds of backpacks and school supplies on Saturday.
“Because of the cuts that we have statewide, it is very important that we offer support to our city districts, to our county districts, so that all of our students will have an opportunity to have what they need on a daily basis,” Dr. Gwendolyn Tilghman said.
These will go to students in Birmingham, Fairfield, and Shelby County.
