Camping for a cause

Campout on campus

ISU Student Veterans of America members are camping out south of the campanile this week to increase awareness of homelessness among U.S. veterans and support the Department of Veterans Affairs' initiative to end veterans homelessness by 2015.

Club members will accept donations, including nonperishable foods that will be delivered to local food pantries (including the SHOP on campus). Monetary donations will go to the Emergency Residence Project in Ames and the Veterans Community Gratitude Fund, which assists student veterans on campus. Photo by Bob Elbert.
