Honor societies to raise money for Haiti relief efforts

RELEASED: Feb. 1, 2010

EAU CLAIRE — The Alpha Lambda Delta and Phi Eta Sigma scholastic honor societies at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will host two events in February to support Haitian Earthquake Relief.

At the groups' first general membership meeting, members will be challenged to bring cash donations, which then will be matched by the organization and contributed to the Red Cross Haitian Earthquake Relief. The meeting will begin at 5 p.m. Feb 4 in Higherground in the Crest Wellness Center on upper campus.

ALD-PES's tradition of offering study break cookies to McIntyre Library patrons also will take on a new focus in February. From 1-3 p.m. Feb. 11 and from 7-9 p.m. Feb. 14, members will offer their heart-shaped Valentine's cookies in exchange for a donation to the Red Cross Haitian Earthquake Relief effort.

For more information, contact Paula Stuettgen, adviser to the Alpha Lambda Delta and Phi Eta Sigma first-year scholastic honor societies, at 715-836-4803 or stuettpj@uwec.edu.
