As president of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated® – Upsilon Omega Omega Chapter, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website!
We are excited to celebrate 20 years of service to the Irmo-Lexington County area this year. We plan to participate in at least 20 acts of service this year to commemorate this grand occasion. Over the years, the chapter has demonstrated its commitment to impacting lives through various community programs including the facilitation of youth enrichment programs such as ASCEND SM and Girls of Promise/Boys of Purpose, providing backpacks and school supplies for students, distributing meals and seasonal wraps to families and people in need, and renewing a playground of local schools. We recently received a grant from USDA to create and share a community garden with the Lexington Community.
