In addition to the activities to promote Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority’s signature program, Pi Eta Omega sponsors additional programs and events that support the goals and vision of the organization.

Pi Eta Omega Annual Community Prayer Brunch
The annual community prayer brunch, held each spring, is a prayer-filled event that focuses on the needs of our community, including youth and those who are at the margins of our society. During this event, Pi Eta Omega celebrates the faithfulness of community members who provide “service to all mankind” by awarding them Helping Hands Awards. Recipients of this award have come from various backgrounds such as education, politics, health professionals, and the arts.
Backpack & School Supply Drive for Children of Incarcerated Parents
More than 25,000 children in Florida have a parent in prison or jail. The incarceration of parents has severe, unseen consequences for children who are often left confused and uncertain about their future. It also has financial consequences for those who are taking care of these children. Pi Eta Omega has eased some of the burden by contributing backpacks and supplies to the children of incarcerated parents.
