Your support and contributions will make a difference in our students' lives. You can choose to send in gift cards or donate and we will buy them for our students to use in emergencies. More details below.
This year, we have been recognized by the Penn State Alumni Association for a project called “Alumni Lions Helping Student Lions”, a program which directly supports the students of the York campus. At two events over the past year, our membership was asked to bring gift cards for local grocery stores or gas stations to our events. Gift cards were requested because the York campus does not have a food bank facility, but occasionally the students on our campus have a demonstrated need for groceries, gas, and even diapers for their family.
Unfortunately, over the past few months as the pandemic has impacted everyone, the Office of Student Affairs has used nearly all the gift cards we were able to supply them. Since our in-person events have been cancelled, we are reaching out for donations, if you are able, to please contribute $10 or $20 gift card(s) (Giant, Weis, Sheetz, Rutter’s, etc.) so that we can continue to support the students.
As an option, we are also providing a PayPal/credit card option, to donate so we can purchase gift cards, to save you a trip to the store. (see PayPal button above)
Gift cards can be sent to the attention of:

Our total to be delivered to the Lion Pantry is $4,040.73
Thank you to all who supported this challenge!
