It is easy to consider the material trappings and excess customarily associated with this very popular holiday when we think of Christmas. The gift-giving, tree decorating, travel, family dinners, and even the bright-eyed children waking Christmas morning with expectation all have their rightful place in its tradition.
The fact is that in many ways, it has taken the collective weight of a global pandemic to cause to shift from selfishness to service.
Even as we speak, during this holiday season, Brothers and Omega Chapters alike are mobilizing to offer food, shelter, clothing, and comfort to families and individuals who otherwise would go without life’s necessities. In the economy of Omega, we firmly believe that consistent benevolence and giving is the standard we should all seek to achieve.
As you go about celebrating your holiday season, Omega Psi Phi encourages you to continue to meet the needs of those in your sphere of influence and, when possible, throughout your respective communities.
Finally, the Brothers of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated, would like to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas. May your goodwill and great works speak for you during both this joyful and yet challenging holiday season.
