Initiative Serving Inland Empire Area Youth

    SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mu Xi Lambda Chapter
of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. today announced the start of its
year-end donation and sponsorship drive. The fund-raising campaign is being

share in our mission to provide character building and educationally enriching
experiences for youth of color," said Kevin Baker, president, Mu Xi Lambda
Chapter. "The 2008 campaign presents an excellent marketing platform, which
will allow sponsors to build loyalty for their brands within the community."
    Since its formation in 1977, the Mu Xi Lambda Chapter has been active in
the Inland Empire by providing leadership development and mentoring assistance
via the Fraternity's national and local initiatives. The Chapter utilizes
funds raised through its community outreach activities to award scholarships
to deserving students.  Businesses, philanthropists and others have the
