Restore, Refresh and Renew Project
On Saturday, May 20, 2017, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.®, Iota Pi Omega Chapter, met at Endeavor Elementary Magnet School in Cocoa to perform their AKA 1908 Playground Project. Despite the 85 degree temperature and early morning hour, the members came prepared to pull weeds, remove dead plants, trash and debris, plant new plants, trim hedges and put down mulch. Within two hours, the flower beds were transformed. The area looked amazing! The school principal, Sarah Mercer, was extremely pleased with the outcome. Under the direction of Vice President Reva Watson, members reported for duty ready to get dirty and sweaty for the common goal of the sorority. Under Target IV: Environmental Ownership, sorority members worldwide will restore and renew 1,908 existing community and school playgrounds with its Restore, Refresh and Renew Project.
