Honoring the memory of a fraternity brother who recently died, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity is holding a drive for bone marrow donors for the nonprofit Be The Match. The effort aims to boost the number of African-Americans on the bone marrow donor registry.

The late Rex L. Crawley was the former assistant dean and a professor at Robert Morris University’s School of Communications and Information Systems, and co-director of the Black Male Leadership Development Institute. He died Nov. 25 of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, without having found a marrow donor. He was also a board member of the National Marrow Donor Program. A number of black Greek-letter fraternities and sororities have joined the Be The Match effort.

Remaining locations and where people can sign up for the registry today are:

Bidwell Street United Presbyterian Church, 1025 Liverpool St., 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Thelma Lovette YMCA, 2114 Centre Ave., 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Kingsley Association, 6435 Frankstown Ave., 11a.m. to 2 p.m.
