"Rochester fraternity holds event for voter registration, census."
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A Rochester-area fraternity offered up hot dogs and hamburgers as part of an effort to register voters and fill out more census data.
The Theta Omicron chapter of Omega Psi Phi looked to provide "uplift" to the community on Saturday at Mt. Olivet Baptist Church.
The event also supported the fraternity's scholarship foundation.
"We feel as if coming out here and educating everyone on the importance of voter registration and making sure you fill out your census forms is definitely a key to making sure we get the resources needed here in the Rochester area to make sure that we stay a thriving community," co-organizer Joe Thomas said.

"A food drive on Saturday aimed to help the youth at the Boys and Girls Club."
The food drive, which was sparked by a need to help young people in the community who have gone hungry because of the COVID-19 pandemic, was held by the local chapter of Theta Omnicron of Omega Psi Phi at Aenon Missionary Baptist Church.
Donations of the canned food will be distributed by the Boys and Girls Club of Rochester to local families.
