Our projects are devoted to three themes:
1) Raising funds to provide scholarships for deserving, disadvantaged youth to pursue post-secondary education;
2) Holding food drives and other activites to provide hunger and malnutitrion relief to identified students and familes; and,
3) To provide support and advocacy through mentoring, for underserved young people, encouraging them to reach their fullest potential.

A highlight of our year has been to sponsor our 4th annual Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway. Here is an example of our work:
The Community Resource Opportunity Project (C.R.O.P) Foundation Inc., (https://www/chesapeakecropfoundation.org) supported 50 families in the Berkley community in the City of Chesapeake, by providing each identified family with one 14lb turkey and side items. Partnering with the Sigma Kappa Kappa and Zeta Iota Chapters of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., The Buffalow Family and Friends Foundation, and City of Chesapeake Human Services we raised and contributed over $600.00 in cash to purchase and provide frozen turkeys in reusable holiday bags to identified families to ensure they would be able to truly enjoy this Thanksgiving holiday. To accomplish this good and honorable work, C.R.O.P Foundation worked with Ms. Nischelle Buffalow, a local community activist and local WTKR 2012 People Taking Action Humanitarian Award winner to add non perishable items to our Thanksgiving bags, Sigma Kappa Kappa and Zeta Iota Chapters for providing additional turkeys and Chesapeake Human Services for identifying families with children to participate in this community event. This was truly a heartwarming event, hearing testimonials from turkey recipients such as:
“I am on a fixed disability income and it’s hard at times. We don’t have a lot to work with. This will give us an opportunity to have a family dinner together. Leftovers can be stretched too. Bless you all for doing this”
“It will make it possible for our family to really give thanks and this reminds us how lucky we are. Thank you so much!”
“My family and I will be able to have our first thanksgiving together as a family in one place in years. Oh my, this is such a blessing.”
Thank you to our community partners. The C.R.O.P Foundation looks forward to our continued work with our community partners, as we strive together, to nourish the minds, bodies, and souls of our children today; creating stronger communities for tomorrow.
