Members of a USC fraternity are busy getting ready for Thanksgiving, not for themselves or their families, but for the homeless.Zeta Phi Rho kicked off its 8th Annual Holiday Project, which they call Zeta Phi Skid Rho.

Working with the Union Rescue Mission, the goal is to make 5,000 sandwiches to help feed the homeless during the holiday season.

"We get a whole bunch of different volunteers from all the different student organizations, as well as our chapters from other schools, and we're going to make 5,000 bag lunches for the homeless," said Zeta Phi Rho member Justin Ng.

This is just one of several events the fraternity holds throughout the year to help raise money for the mission, and to raise awareness about homelessness.
