    The Candlelight Walk for Peace, a university fundraiser for Pennies for Peace, will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

    Pennies for Peace is a national fundraising project to build schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

    Jeff Giraud, adjunct professor of communication studies, said he assigned Pennies for Peace to his group discussion and intercultural communication classes as a service learning project.

    Students from Giraud’s classes will raise awareness for the program as well as promote it throughout the campus community. The walk will start in the Moudy courtyard, continue through campus and end back in front of Moudy.

    Giraud said students will carry plastic pumpkins to collect money as they walk. The walk is open to all members of the university community.
