Fraternity Raises Money For Vets

Posted: Updated:

Kappa Sigma Fraternity at Midwestern State University is holding its annual Box-A-Thon charity event. You can spot the men at the intersection of Hampstead and Taft. They're having fun and raising money from drivers. Money will go to the Fisher House, an organization that helps wounded veterans and their families. They will be there until Sunday afternoon.

"We spend three days and nights in these boxes collecting money for the Fisher House which is like Ronald McDonald but for vets and their families going through rehab," said Advisor Andrew Lindsay. "Basically we just ask for donations from passing cars."


They will be there until Sunday afternoon. The fraternity has been doing this since the 1980's.
