Professional fraternity gives coats to Salvation Army

November 27, 2006

Albany -- A fraternity of Albany professional men makes sure the Salvation Army will have coats to keep children warm this winter.

The Delta Delta Chapter of the Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity donated 36 coats to the Salvation Army Monday morning. The Fraternity, made up of Albany Doctors, lawyers, bankers, and other professionals, say it's their way of giving back.

Fraternity President Trent Williams said "this is the season that's been noted for giving and that's what we want to do. We want to give an opportunity to give back to the community, and giving coats at this time of the year seems very appropriate. "

The Salvation Army commander said the coats will be given out at Christmas to those in need.
