Brothers from the Iota Pi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated participated in the Miami-Dade Chapter of the National Pan-Hellenic Council event to serve meals to residents of Camillus House. Nearly three dozen NPHC representatives met to prepare and serve meals to over 150 residents at the center’s Downtown Central location. Council members catered a breakfast menu that consisted of grits, eggs, sausage, biscuit, assorted breakfast pastries, hot and cold beverages. The volunteers also donated food items and began the meal preparation for the center’s annual Thanksgiving meal.
