Our Opportunity to Serve

"Inspiring service in the public's interest."

As is evident from the dates above, after notification of our Association status, TCAA’s first action as an entity was a civic-engagement event in support of another chapter. We immediately put our motto, “Where Fraternalism Happens”, into practice. TCAA participated in Bowie-Mitchellville Alumni’s “Get Out the Vote Motorcade”. Approximately fifteen members of TCAA attended the event. Brother David G. McDonald III, a member of TCAA’s Board of Directors, developed the vehicle placard that was used most by cars in the motorcade. This event was the first opportunity for TCAA members to fellowship in person since the onset of COVID restrictions.

Years earlier, the Brothers of the future Association and Chapter began to make substantive impacts by serving various communities prior to the existence of either entity. The citizens of these communities were in need, so Brothers wasted no time and stepped up to meet those needs. Service projects included the following:

    • Food-bank distribution drives

    • Clothing drives to benefit a men's shelter

    • Back-to-school supply drives

    • Thanksgiving food drives

    • Christmas toy drives

    • Other charitable efforts

Continuing our commitment to public service, Brother Lamont O. Norwood, Chairman of the Social Action Committee, and now also the Keeper of Records for Towson-Catonsville Alumni, produced a COVID-19 Town Hall to address the clinical and mental-health issues associated with the pandemic. The registration page was viewed more than eight hundred times, 96% of available tickets were claimed, and attendees joined from locations as distant as nations in Europe.
