Zeta Phi Beta members from AIC help at Open Pantry

Posted: Updated:

Members from the Zeta Phi Beta sorority at American International College helped out at Open Pantry Community Services on Saturday, taking part in the "adopt a room" program.

The members brought in the necessary supplies to clean, paint and decorate two rooms at the facility.

They told CBS 3 that the volunteering is part of their group's mission.

"Our mission and our objective is to do the work in the community, and so every month we look to do a different community service project," said Ruth Paul. "This month, we decided to adopt a room."

"It just felt good to actually give back to, you know, those who don't have so much," said Danielle Patin.

Open Pantry operates the Teen Parent Program, which provides residence for teens who are pregnant or parenting and in need of a safe place to live.
