RELEASED: Nov. 30, 2000
DANVILLE, KY - Centre College students in a local service fraternity will hold an overnight outdoor vigil Saturday, Dec. 2, to raise public awareness of homelessness and hunger. Each participating member of Alpha Phi Omega also is seeking sponsors who will make donations to support services for the homeless. Funds raised in the event will go to the Alma McLeod Foundation.
According to Chris Lewis, a Centre senior from Cincinnati who is coordinating the event, the students will begin the all-night vigil around 9 p.m. on the lawn of the Old Centre administration building and remain there until 9 a.m. Saturday morning.
According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, close to two million Americans are homeless for a portion of each year.
