CARE for AIDS is conducting a textbook drive this week in Free Speech Alley at LSU to raise money for people in Kenya who are affected by HIV or AIDS, according to an LSU news release.

Throughout the week, a station will be set up in front of the LSU Union.

Students can get a free T-shirt in exchange for donating three textbooks, which will be sold either online or to the campus bookstore. The proceeds go to advance the cause of CARE for AIDS in Kenya.

CARE for AIDS partners with churches in Kenya to operate centers that serve the physical, spiritual, economic and social needs of men and women living with HIV/AIDS. Each center operates within the local church and serves 80 clients at a time. The clients go through a nine-month process of education, training and support.
