Student Organizations Collaborate to Host ‘Freezing for a Cause’

Ferris State University’s Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. Zeta Beta Chapter and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. Zeta Rho Chapter are collaborating and asking community members to join the annual “Freezing for a Cause” event beginning at 9 p.m. on Wednesday Feb. 19 in the North Quad.

The two student organizations are joining together to collect nonperishable foods and/or slightly used clothes and shoes to be donated and distributed to local Big Rapids organizations that assist people in need.

“Freezing for a Cause” participants want to make a symbolic statement by working outdoors to collect donations from Ferris and local community members. In an effort to stay warm, the event hosts will serve hot chocolate and light refreshments.

The event is free and open to the public. Attendees are advised to dress warm.
