GAMMA PI ANSWERS THE CALL IN PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY DURING COVID-19
Since the State of Maryland went into a shelter-in-place posture in March in response to the COVID-19 crisis, the Brothers of Gamma Pi Chapter have been anything but sheltered when it comes to Social Action. While being careful to follow government-mandated guidelines on social distancing and wearing proper protective proper protective equipment, the chapter has been on the move throughout the country helping to provide relief for the residents of the community through a variety of Social Action projects. Dressed smartly in their Royal Purple and Old Gold “PPE,” members of The Super Chapter braved the leftover elements from winter and the threats of the lurking virus to “be of service” in the county.
