Delta Delta Chapter of Kappa Psi Fraternity Receives $1K Grant to Create Care Packages for City's Homeless
December 29 — UH College of Pharmacy's Delta Delta Chapter of the Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity has been awarded a $1,000 grant to purchase, collect and assemble care packages for Houston's homeless community.
The Kappa Psi Service Grant to the chapter was awarded by the International Kappa Psi Philanthropy Committee. The chapter's care packages will consist of health products, such as masks, soap and toothbrushes, as well as water bottles and clean socks.
The chapter is partnering with the Mission Centers of Houston's Gano Mission Center, a nonprofit arm of the Union Baptist Association of Texas, to distribute the care packages.
"The objective is to provide 100 homeless people with essential self-care items that can help them stay warm, take better care of themselves and reduce their risk of getting COVID-19," said UHCOP Pharm.D. student and Chapter Regent-elect Alec Garza.
