KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One local fraternity is showing their appreciation for first responders in the metro. 

The local chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity gifted several fire crews in KCMO and KCK with catered meals on Sunday.

The organization said it’s their way of saying thank you to the firefighters and paramedics who’ve put their lives on the line, as they work during the coronavirus pandemic. 

The men said it’s a good feeling to know they’re helping spread some positivity during what can be a trying time for first responders. 

“It makes us feel good that we can help someone,” Beta Lambda Chapter President Damon Roath said. “We’re also helping a small business by giving them business in a time that’s slow for them as well. So, it’s a win-win for all of us, all the way around.”

Alpha Phi Alpha dropped off meals at eight fire stations in Kansas City and two in KCK.
