Local fraternity alumni chapter provides Thanksgiving dinner for eight families

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Wilmington alumni chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity is taking part in the season of giving.

Their goal is to provide Thanksgiving dinner for eight Wilmington families.

The members spent more than $1,000 at the Food Lion on Oleander Drive.

All the Thanksgiving necessities were covered, like turkey, ham, and stuffing.

The group packed up all of the groceries and transported them to D.C. Virgo Preparatory Academy to present to the families.

“They don’t have to worry about coming up with the means to get food for Thanksgiving, it’s nice knowing that we have the ability to be able to bless these families with that, so we’re excited about doing that and we know it’s gonna put a smile on their faces,” said chapter president Derek Holland.

The organization will be helping eight more families at Christmas.

Those families will receive food, clothes, toiletries, and, of course, toys.
