Concerned Women Inc. was recently nominated and named recipient of a donation from a local military sorority chapter.

Kappa Epsilon Psi Military Sorority Inc., made a $1,000 charitable donation to the nonprofit food pantry in Grovetown.

Iasha Nichols, of Kappa Epsilon Psi, said that after her family volunteered with the food pantry, she nominated the nonprofit organization for one of the quarterly awards the chapter donates.

Nichols said she added the group’s mission statement and charitable events in the community, to the nomination application that won the organization the donation.

“They have always been helpful to the community,” Nichols said.

Nichols said she and her husband, Bruce Nichols, who is part of the Kappa Lambda Chi Military Fraternity, Inc., have completed volunteer training with the organization and their daughter has also volunteered.

Other members of Kappa Epsilon Psi who helped present the donation Tuesday at the Newmantown Road food pantry include Marilyn Norris, who has worked with Bea Sanders, the executive director of Concerned Women Inc., at other charities.

“It’s always a pleasure to give back to somebody who gives so much for the community and never asks for anything,” Norris said of Sanders and the organization.

Concerned Women Inc. volunteers Kezia Richardson and Meagan Harrison said they were eager to put the money towards helping the community.

“I have been volunteering here for two years. and I have been able to watch them give away food and clothing to people who really need it. It’s been wonderful to watch,” Richardson said.

“Giving back is one of the things we love to do here,” Harrison added.
