Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee’s Annual Toys for the Kids Holiday Party offers the community an opportunity to lift the spirits of minority and underprivileged children and their families. Rho Xi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. wanted to bring joy and cheer in an otherwise very stressful time for the effected families in their community by volunteering at an event that wholly encompassed the spirit of giving. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee’s 22nd Annual Toys for the Kids Holiday Party was held on December 17, 2016 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston, TX and included a grand parade entrance, bounce house, entertainment from local musicians, food and gifts for the more than 5,000 children in attendance. Rho Xi Chapter volunteered to organize attendees for food distribution, monitor the capacity of the lavatories and stocked beverages for distribution. At the close of the event, children departed with toys that they happily unwrapped at the event and ear-to-ear smiles that will never be forgotten. Brothers of Rho Xi Chapter stated that it was a remarkable feeling to be a blessing unto others through service in their communities and to see thousands of smiles illuminating the room.
