Saint Xavier University’s (SXU) Student Veteran Alliance (SVA) has always been a community-based organization, where members give back and bring awareness to those have given the ultimate sacrifice. This year, SXU’s SVA is working towards a particular goal, creating a veteran memorial on campus near Lake Marion. As with all of their events, the SVA members are working diligently to generate the funds needed to create this new addition to campus through various raffles and fundraising. Once the funds have been raised, SVA members would like to host an unveiling ceremony tentatively scheduled for Veterans Day 2017.
If you would like to help the SVA organization reach their goal, join them and SXU alumni members at Halfway to Homecoming scheduled for Friday, Feb. 24 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at 115 Bourbon Street, 3359 W. 115th Street, Merrionette Park. Here, you’ll have the chance to talk with SXU’s student veterans and help donate to the cause!
