RIVERSIDE, CA- The Brothers of the Riverside Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. for the seventh year co-sponsored the 2013 Thanksgiving Giveaway of the Riverside Fair Housing Council. The Chapter’s Diamond Foundation was able to significantly increase its financial support this year at a time when the number of people served also increased. Rose Mayes, Fair Housing Executive Director, expressed her concern. “We thought we had received only enough funding to reach 100 people so the list of families was closed; however, with the increased funding from sponsors like Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, we reopened the list to serve some 300 people. Additionally, any leftover resources will go to the Community Settlement Association in support of their holiday gift baskets for families in need.”
