Knightnews.com stopped by Sigma Pi’s annual ACE (Altruistic Campus Experience) philanthropy that helps raise canned goods for the Knights Helping Knights Food Pantry.
During these tough economic times, the Knights Helping Knights Food Pantry is out to help students in need of food, clothing, and other consumable items. It is located in the UCF Ferrell Commons room 171 and serves approximately 2,000 students per semester.
Sigma Pi helped out Knights Helping Knights by holding their philanthropy at Memory Mall.
Sigma Pi is trying to get everyone campus-wide involved by making the philanthropy into a competition to see who can build the most creative tower out of their cans. Many students and organizations were getting very creative with this competition, using spoons, forks, and glad plastic bags to build mini-castles.
The judges for these castles were Miss Orlando, Miss UCF, and Sigma Pi’s very own Seth Iskowitz.
Iskowitz, who organized the philanthropy, told Knightnews.com that this year was a success, being that they raised over 2,500 cans to help the needy.
