Sigma Chi giving back with JEANS FOR TEENS
Sigma Chi Fraternity at UWG is making its first philanthropic attempt with JEANS FOR TEENS. The fraternity is teaming up with Alice's House, a group home in Carrollton, to give back to the community.
Sigma Chi Fraternity President, Kentralle Goodwin, said that the fraternity is not asking for monetary contributions, but strictly jeans that people no longer wear. Goodwin also said that the weather is getting colder and some children do not have any clothes to wear. The donations would go to children who are without proper attire for the upcoming cold months and Sigma Chi is hoping that all that can donate will.
Sigma Chi will have a table set up outside the UCC this Thursday, November 17, from 11 am to 4 pm.
Alice's House is part of the Georgia Baptist Children's Homes, and is in the "building business." The website states that they are not "building structures," but are instead "rebuilding lives."
