Members of one of UAFS’s Greek organizations recently took time from their studies to give back to the River Valley. The Omicron-Tau Chapter of Kappa Sigma Fraternity spent the weekend of Feb. 1-2 assisting the River Valley Regional Food Bank and Fort Smith Junior Volleyball Club with their various needs.
“For us to help out means a lot because it shows not only who we are as fraternity men but as Kappa Sigmas,” said Joey Olguin, service chair of Omicron-Tau. “Even though it was Super Bowl weekend, we still took the time to get together and help the community.”
Fraternity members spent Saturday, Feb. 1, at the River Valley Regional Food Bank, sorting food and providing cases of water for delivery. On Sunday evening, Feb. 2, the fraternity members assisted the Fort Smith Juniors Volleyball Club with setup and teardown of a tournament.
“It was great to see all the guys getting involved,” said Kevin Mendoza, president of the Omicron-Tau Chapter. “We’re always volunteering around the community, whether it’s at the Boys and Girls Club [or] cleaning our highway. We just love giving back.”
Omicron-Tau members say they have more plans for the coming year on how to give back to the community. In the meantime please contact Mendoza at firstname.lastname@example.org for further inquiries.
“Kappa Sigma welcomes men from every background, and I am proud to see the strong brotherhood that forms between us,” Mendoza said. “Leadership is important to build on, and I see a positive growth in this organization that I hope to see continue.”
