Members of the fraternity stopped by West Town Elementary and donated $400 for books.

Following their stop at the elementary school, they dropped off supplies at the Englewood Health Care facility.

They also stopped at Turner Elementary School and Peaceful Manor to donate paper towels, pillows and more.

Frank Wilson, member of Omega Psi Phi, said," Consequently, it’s just important that we show our appreciation to the community by giving back. And this is just one of the many ways we will be doing so over the weekend.

On Friday morning, the fraternity along with other greek organizations will give a donation to Second Harvest Bank.
