Columbus fraternity chapter hosts annual toy giveaway

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A local fraternity chapter hosted its annual Christmas giveaway Wednesday evening.

The Lambda Iota Chapter of the Columbus Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. gave away boxes of toys to 20 families in need.

The fraternity partnered with the Department of Family and Children Services to determine what families were in need.

"When kids see us doing this especially young black men, they understand that you can be a great person and we want to set the example for people," said Edward Stephens, keeper of records.

The families at the giveaway spoke words of thanks and were presented with a box full of toys.
