This past Friday I took my son August the Great to his 1st Community Service event. This weekend was his 1st Birthday Weekend and I wanted to start a tradition with him to where he’s able to give back for all the blessings he will have growing up.
I attend a feed the homeless program every 3rd Friday with my Fraternity (Alpha Phi Alpha) at the First Institutional Baptist Church in Phoenix Arizona. I’ve been involved with this community service event ever since I joined my fraternity in 2001. Please feel free to come join us at the church ANY friday as it’s open to everyone to volunteer. We start at 5:30pm until 8pm. it’s on the corner of 12th street and Jefferson. 1141 E. Jefferson st. Phoenix az 85034.
A few family members flew into town that same day and we all took that opportunity to go together as a unit to support August on his Birthday weekend and help some of our less fortunate members in Phoenix. Hopefully when August Grows up he will not depart from this seed of helping others.
