Hodges University has begun a R.E.D. (Remember Everyone Deployed) Friday movement to honor United States military servicemen and servicewomen who are currently serving overseas. The movement encourages students, staff, faculty and campus visitors, as well as the general public, to wear something red on Fridays.
“Only a minority will serve in the United States Armed Forces, but a majority can show their support,” said Christine Manson, Hodges University’s Director of the Dr. Peter Thomas Veterans Services Center. “R.E.D. Fridays are a great way for Hodges University and the community to show our continued support and appreciation for the service of the members of our military.”
Participants are encouraged to share photos and videos on social media in their red apparel and show their support using the hashtags #REDFridays, #RememberEveryoneDeployed and #HodgesWearsRED to join the conversation and spread the movement.
R.E.D. Friday t-shirts are available for purchase on Hodges University campuses in Naples and Fort Myers and online at estore.hodges.edu. A donation of $7 from the sale of each t-shirt is being made to the Military Support Program of the Lee Memorial Health System.
Additional information can be obtained by calling (239) 938-7833 or by visiting Hodges.edu.
