Our fraternity’s commitment to fighting hunger while serving our community aligns perfectly with the mission of Blazer Kitchen, and we look forward to finding many ways to work together.” With the recent philanthropy switch, the women of Alpha Gamma Delta, Gamma Omega Chapter are thrilled that the new philanthropic focus aligns perfectly with the mission of Blazer Kitchen and looking forward to serving the community we live in is core to our fraternity’s purpose, and our sisters now have the opportunity to live our purpose right here on UAB’s campus. Our sisters have such giving hearts and that is evident with how fast have they are signing up for shifts and the amount of time they are volunteering at Blazer Kitchen in the coming year.”
