Ferris Students Prepare to Freeze for a Cause

Freezing for a CauseFerris State University’s Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. Zeta Beta Chapter and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. Zeta Rho Chapter will host Freezing for a Cause to bring awareness to homelessness on Thursday, Feb. 9 from 9 to 11:30 p.m. on the Main Campus Quad.

The two student organizations will collaborate to collect canned goods and donations of clothing items to benefit those in need in the Big Rapids area. Donated items will be distributed locally to Big Rapids organizations that assist those in need as part of this community service project.

The participating students representing Alpha Phi Alpha and Delta Sigma Theta want the event to impact the campus and local communities through this symbolic yet practical effort this winter. Freezing for a Cause participants plan to work outdoors to collect donations from campus and local community members. 

Brandon Cole, a Ferris student and one of the event organizers, wants students to consider donations as they find clothes that they no longer wear.

Anyone that wishes to participate is encouraged to join in and dress warm.
