The African-American Greek organizations delivered in Selma and Dallas County during the holiday season. 

The Dallas County Chapters of Alpha Phi Alpha, Zeta Phi Beta, Delta Sigma Theta and Alpha Kappa Alpha spent the last month of 2023 volunteering their services to the community through various events.

The Zeta Eta Omega Chapter of AKA sponsored the Reading is Fundamental event on Dec. 16. We appreciate the AKAs for continuing that began years ago by the late Nancy Sewell.
