FARGO-The men of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity and the women of the Kappa Delta sorority of North Dakota State University are working together on "Freeze-A-Thon" to raise money for Nokomis Childcare Center.

Fraternity and sorority members plan to stand outside collecting donations on the corner of 12th Avenue North and University Drive. They will be near the Loaf-n-Jug convenience store, and plan to collect donations 24 hours a day, from Monday, Jan. 30, through Friday, Feb. 3. The group will also collect donations outside of the NDSU Memorial Union from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The groups raised $16,000 last year and hope to raise $20,000 this year.
