Each year, the Penn State Club of Lancaster County conducts a service project (or series of projects) to show the importance of philanthropic support by Penn State alumni.
Penn State Lion's Pantry
The chapter is once again going to support the Student Food Pantry at UP. We continue to accept donations at our Chapter board meetings—we are concentrating on a big collection for our March Board Meeting!, as the need tends to be greatest near the end of a semester. Lion's Pantry is a student run organization created to address the issue of student hunger at Penn State. Their purpose is to help provide sustenance to Penn State's low-income students by providing goods donated from the community and corporate partners. The need for a university food pantry has been realized through stories from students, community members, and nation-wide statistics showing the growth of food insecurity for college-aged adults.
