CARE for AIDS Textbook Drive Taking Place During Finals Week

12/06/2011 11:05 AM

BATON ROUGE – CARE for AIDS is conducting a textbook drive this week in Free Speech Alley to raise money for those affected with HIV and AIDS in Kenya. Throughout finals week, a collecting station will be set up in front of the LSU Union, and students can get a free t-shirt in exchange for three textbooks. All the books are then resold either to the campus bookstore or online. The proceeds go to advance the cause of CARE for AIDS in Kenya.

 

CARE for AIDS partners with local Kenyan churches to operate life transforming centers that serve the physical, spiritual, economic and social needs of men and women living with HIV/AIDS. Each of these centers operate from within the local church and serve 80 clients at a time. These 80 men and women go through a nine month process of education, training and support in order to live full, productive and healthy lives.

 

For more information on the textbook drive, contact Larry Robins, assistant director of campus development with LSU Student Government, at lrobi25@tigers.lsu.edu. For more information on CARE for AIDS, visit http://careforaids.org/.
