JOPLIN, MO.--- Students from Missouri State Southern University are campaigning for the U.S. military. Brothers with the Kappa Sigma Fraternity are staying up for 48 hours to raise money for the "No Sleep for Soldiers" campaign. Members of the organization tells us it's designed to assist wounded military veterans returning home from active duty. The funds will go to housing at veterans administration centers throughout the country, and help support military families financially while the solider goes through recovery.
"It's our primary philanthropy for the fraternity. It's what we go for and strive for, just help out all of our wounded vets, build them new houses and everything so that they can live better lives," said Tyler Whitworth, Kappa Sigma Fraternity, MSSU.
This is the second year for the campaign at Missouri Southern. The goal is to raise $2,500. Members of the fraternity will be taking up donations until April 17th on the corner of 7th and Duquesne Street.
