Since its inauguration in 2016, the initiative has assisted five elementary schools, over 1,000 students, and has helped eased the financial burden for parents and educators. Studies have shown that starting the school year with the necessary school supplies promotes learning, boosts self-esteem, and helps keep kids engaged and in school.
The N.C. Alpha School Drive unites the Association of North Carolina Alphamen (ANCA) in fellowship and action with community members and partners during a day of service in which we collect school supplies for the youth in our local school districts.
An investment in our youth is a contribution to the leaders of today and tomorrow. Through the N.C. Alpha School Drive, the men of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. aim to improve the academic journey of students by ensuring local educators and kids have the classroom tools and resources needed for success.
