ORONO – They just moved in and they’re already camping out.
The University of Maine chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon (Sig p) fraternity is hosting its annual Camp Out for YouthAIDS on the corner of the mall, near Fobler Library and Memorial Union at UMaine. Sig Ep members will be on the mall collecting donations for YouthAIDS through Friday Sept. 4.
This campout is one of SigEp’s biggest events all year and usually pulls in about $1,500, all of which gets donated to spread awareness of AIDS and its impact on people from the ages of 15-24. The SigEp brothers ask anyone with a spare dollar or some change to stop by and donate to help make this the largest donation yet. If everyone on campus donates $1, SigEp will make in excess of $10,000.
YouthAIDS, an education and prevention program of Population Services International, uses media, pop culture, music, theatre and sports to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS and reach 600 million young people in more than 60 countries with life-saving messages, products, services and care.
