“We tend to bond with each other,” says Jamila Taylor, vice president of the Delta Upsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. The group has a long history of giving their time to Food Lifeline: “We have fun and we learn how far the resources go in the community.”
Jamila says she appreciates that volunteering is a team-building activity as well as a way for her and her sorority sisters to spend time with their families. She comes by her volunteer commitment honestly — her mother used to volunteer her time at our facility and through Alpha Kappa Alpha as well.
“Food Lifeline gives us a way to not only help those who are hungry but to help other young women become positive citizens,” Jamila says.
Alpha Kappa Alpha involves women of all ages, and their group has volunteered for the past two years through The Bite of Seattle, Food & Fund Drives, re-pack-a-thons, our croquet tournament, and in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.
We have so much appreciation for dedicated volunteers like Jamila and her fellow members of Alpha Kappa Alpha. Thank you for giving your time to solve hunger here in Western Washington!
