UNK–  University of Nebraska at Kearney students will be in the Kearney
community Saturday (April 24) collecting toiletries for the Nebraska AIDS
project, according to Aimee Adams, Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity

“We (Alpha Phi Omega members) dropped off sacks around Kearney with a small
description of toiletry items needed and a message asking residents to
leave the sack out on the front porch on Saturday,” Adams, a Kearney
native, said. “This is helping out the Nebraska Aids Project, because they
have been low on toiletry items for a while now.”

In all, students dropped off 1,000 bags within the Kearney community last
Saturday. According to their Web site, the Nebraska AIDS project acts to
eliminate the spread of HIV and provides comprehensive services to all
people affected by HIV and AIDS.

The toiletries drive is supported through a grant from the UNK American
Democracy Project. The American Democracy Project is a multi-campus
initiative focused on higher education’s role in preparing the next
generation of informed, engaged citizens.
