Community Service Fraternity Hosts Regional Conference


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Even with the storm Thursday, hundreds of college students made it to Springfield for the regional Alpha Phi Omega conference.

Alpha Phi Omega is a co-educational organization that helps college students get started providing service to their communities, the nation, and their respective campuses.

This weekend’s conference provides workshops, training, and service opportunities.

“we were going to be doing a bone marrow drive, but due to the weather, it was postponed and may take place tomorrow. We’re currently making cards and door hangs for local nursing homes, and tomorrow, we’re going to go play with the children at the Baystate Children’s Hospital,” explains Autumn Paro, co-chair of the conference.

Alpha Phi Omega is a nationwide program, with chapters all across the country.
