The Brothers of the Iota Pi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi AlphaFraternity, Inc.recently donated over 50,000 sheets of paper to two elementary schools in South Miami-Dade County. The recipients, Cutler Ridge and Ethel Beckford Elementary Schools, were selected from both community and fraternal recommendations. Copy paper has become a growing commodity at schools across the District as many funding resources for basic supplies have been cut.In addition to copy paper, the chapter also donated book bags, pencils, folders and other related supplies. Donations were also made on behalf of the University of Miami William R. Butler Center for Volunteer Service and Leadership Development, Costco, BJ's and Seminole Chapter #10 OES P.H.A.
