The members of the Omicron-Tau chapter of Kappa Sigma Fraternity at the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith took time from their studies to give back to the Fort Smith community this month, delivering nearly 100 pizzas to first responders in the River Valley.
60 pizzas were delivered to the Fort Smith Fire Department, Fort Smith Police Department and Sebastian County Sheriff’s Department on Friday, Sept. 11, in honor and remembrance of the lives lost following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the first responders who risked their lives to save others.
"We've done this every year since I became a Kappa Sigma, and I just love being able to give back to the people who work tirelessly to keep our communities safe. It also feels humbling to be able to memorialize those who gave their all to save the lives of so many people 19 years ago," said Michael Edgar, a class of 2021 Biology major.
The following week an additional 30 pizzas were delivered across the city. More than 30 donors contributed $598 to purchase the pizzas.
