February 27, 2015

Louisville – On Thursday, February 26th during the regular meeting of the Louisville Metro Council, Councilwoman Mary C. Woolridge (D-3) honored a very dedicated group of people who have made the holiday season a happier time for those less fortunate in the Metro Louisville area.  

“Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc is hereby recognized by the Metro Council for their participation and continued commitment, loyalty, dedication, support, untiring and unselfish efforts put forth to those in need during the holiday season; the Louisville Metro Council admires the Louisville Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. for its efforts to purchase and deliver holiday meal baskets to needy families throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana,” said Woolridge. “There are many families in our community that need help, especially during that time of year.  Kappa Alpha Psi is a dedicated organization of caring individuals in our city and I am happy to recognize them.”

Kappa Alpha Psi began this annual initiative after deciding those in need should not go without food on Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Joining the Fraternity in this effort were First Choice Food Market, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana, the Louisville Kappa Silhouettes and the Louisville Kappa League. 

Councilwoman Woolridge has joined the fraternity and its partners in delivering the baskets for the last three years.
