(July 27, 2012) -- The Alpha Delta Lambda chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. of UTSA will host its annual Free Teachers' Book Drive from 2 to 6 p.m., Saturday, July 28 in the Business Building University Room (2.06.04) on the UTSA Main Campus.

The organization has the event every summer to provide free reading materials for current and future teachers, parents and any organization that promotes literacy as part of Alpha Delta Lambda's "Assault on Literacy" program.

"We really want to help the youth in San Antonio and the surrounding area improve their reading skills," said Willyam Winston, vice president of the Alpha Delta Lambda chapter. "We have several hundreds of books of all levels, so we encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity."

The Alpha Delta Lambda chapter was charted on The University of Texas at San Antonio campus on Feb. 1, 2008. The fraternity strives for excellence by participating in community service and social events to help create a positive image for men in the university setting. Recently, the organization was honored as the 2010-2011 International Chapter of the Year at the 78th International Grand Conclave in Minneapolis, Minn.
