Freezing For A Cause Highlights Important Issues About Fortune ... Who Has It And Who Doesn't

BIG RAPIDS - This is a time of the year, in frigid-cold temperatures, when those among us who are least fortunate suffer the most.

The Ferris State University community is working hard to spread the word about what it means to be homeless and what it means to be homeless when Mother Nature releases her winter fury on many regions of the United States and elsewhere.

Freezing for a Cause is back at Ferris State University and presented by Alpha Phi Alpha Zeta Beta Chapter and Delta Sigma Theta Zeta Rho Chapter.

"This is a real eye opening event. Experience the feel of being homeless for a couple of hours while some have to survive in this FREEZING weather every night," said Michael Wade, assistant director of the Office of Multicultural Student Services at Ferris. "Come out and freeze for a cause."

The event is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 3, from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. on the Campus Quad of the Big Rapids campus of Ferris.

If you have any questions or need any assistance to attend, contact Brandon Cole (313) 622-1265 or Ashleye Moncrief at (313) 574-7959 at least 72 hours in advance.
