The men of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. camped out at Saunders Beach on Christmas Eve to raise awareness of homelessness and poverty in the country and worldwide.

Organizer of the event, Theodore Grant says the event has been happening for the past nine years. He also said, “we choose to do it around Christmas time because its the season of giving and we want to give back to the community and this is a small part which we want to do it.”

The goods received during the initiative were donated to Great Commission Ministries.
