Sigma Phi Epsilon ‘Santas’ sell cookies
The Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity is selling holiday cookies in “secret stockings” to raise money for the Youth AIDS Foundation.
The fraternity has raised nearly $300 so far for their national philanthropy, Sigma Phi Epsilon member Ari Taymore said.
The fraternity’s new member class organizes an original philanthropy event each year to benefit the charity. This year’s new members chose to sell “Secret Santa stockings” filled with cookies for $2. Students can purchase stockings and Sigma Phi Epsilon new members will deliver the stockings to their “secret” recipient.
“So far it’s going really well and the new members are exceeding fundraising expectations,” Taymor said. He added that the new members set a goal to raise $500 and are closer to that goal than expected coming into the last days of the fundraiser.
Sigma Phi Epsilon new members will be outside the Marvin Center Thursday and Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. selling stockings, which they will deliver Saturday.
