President's Message

Happy New Year!!



Welcome to February, the month that represents love and any noteworthy Day from our hearts to yours. I would like to thank my Sisters of Lambda Iota Omega Chapter for being committed to empowering our communities of Gainesville/Hall County for being present and going the extra mile when asked to attend community functions.


Let’s not forget this is Black History Month: I encourage you to continue to learn about our rich African American heritage and our many contributions not only to this nation but to the African Diaspora around the world.


Be sure to stay in touch with us on our social media platforms to see where Lambda Iota Omega is and what we’re up to! Continue to follow us on all our social media platforms.

January Highlights

Following January’s chapter meeting, Lambda Iota Omega uplifted the local community by packing kits for the homeless population in Hall County. The kits included hats, gloves,  and hand warming packs to prepare the homeless population for the cold winter months.


In addition, Lambda Iota Omega and Rho Eta chapters partnered with Straight Street Elementary on Founders’ Day, which was also Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. There were over 60 volunteers including chapter members and community members that packed food bags for families in need. With the help of the community, Lambda Iota Omega and Rho Eta were able to pack 450 bags of food. 


Stay tuned for upcoming events and service projects for 2024!


    Youth Leadership Institute


Lambda Iota and Rho Eta hosted a workshop for the Youth Leadership Institute and covered two important topics: Emergency Preparedness & Social media.


Rho Eta discussed the different types of social media platforms and how to be safe as a social media user and Lambda Iota Omega led a hands-on workshop for emergency preparedness. The YLI students were taught how to perform chest compressions for CPR. In addition, they made first aid kits.
