The Iota Pi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated joined the Miami-Dade National Pan-Hellenic Council to distribute Christmas gifts to the entire student body of Florida City Elementary School.

The Miami-Dade National Pan-Hellenic Council hosts an annual toy collection drive to provide Christmas gifts to children who reside in low income communities.

The council’s holiday gift market included books, action figures, balls, dolls, remote control vehicles, Legos, and electronic learning devices for primary school age children.

The students were allowed to select their personal gifts to take home. In total, over 400 toys were collected by NPHC local affiliate organizations (Alpha

Phi Alpha, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Omega Psi Phi, and Zeta Phi Beta) and distributed at the school site Wednesday afternoon.

A surplus of toys which include featured hot items -

two bicycles and a drone - were allocated to the school administration

to serve as achievement prizes to inspire and reward student performance during the remainder of the school year.
