The brothers of the Sigma Mu chapter along with the students of Virginia Union University conducted a “midday run” in hopes of providing toiletries and food to the homeless in the greater metropolitan Richmond Virginia area. The chapter purchased supplies such as deodorant, toothpaste, soap, water, sandwiches, tissues, and more to be distributed in bags to pass out within the community. The chapter notified the student body of the service project and requested the help of their colleagues to distribute the 50 plus bags of necessities. Over seventy individuals went out into the community, by car and on foot, and provided these bags to individuals living on the streets and in surrounding parks.
