Kisses from the K’s

Daryl Brown, Staff Reporter

The Epsilon Sigma chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority is having a Valentine’s Day event called Kisses from the K’s at Texas A&M University-Commerce. 

It is an event where you have a choice to purchase a candygram sent to a recipient of your choice or a message and photo to be posted on their social media. There is also an

option to purchase both. The candygram will be delivered Feb. 12 by noon while the photo and message post will be all day on Feb. 14.

The price for the candygram or the photo and message is $2.50 but the price to

purchase both is $5. 

The proceeds from this event will be donated to the Black Heart Association, an organization with a purpose to research prevention, treatment and education on heart disease in the Black community. 

Sorority president Beamer Murphy expressed the importance of the event stating, “We all need knowledge of heart disease, it is common for people suffering from heart disease in communities”. 

Murphy believes this event will help bring awareness by informing the student population on the dangers of heart disease and its effect on society. She also says this is a great start for the sorority chapter to be more involved on campus and that there is a lot more in store from the sorority. 

A&M-Commerce students, faculty and staff can purchase an item of their choosing using the cash app provided by the sorority at $ESIG1970 and then direct messaging the sorority twitter page at TAMUC_AKAs. Those interested in supporting the organization have until Feb. 11 to make a purchase of their choice and follow the social media page for more information on what’s next.
