Student Government Association coordinates two fundraisers
Penn State Mont Alto's Student Government Association is coordinating two fundraising efforts to provide earthquake relief aid to Haiti and Chile.
The SGA Senate, in conjunction with its Resident Advisors and Residence Hall Council, will host a talent show to benefit earthquake relief efforts in Chile on Wednesday, April 21 at 8 p.m. in the General Studies Building Auditorium (Room 105). All proceeds will benefit American Red Cross relief efforts in Chile. The event will feature several student-performed acts including the Mont Alto Jazz Band and other outstanding performers. Admission is $1 and there will be door prizes as well as a raffle for the grand prize.
In addition, the SGA is conducting a campus-wide relief effort for Haiti by selling wristbands for $2 each with 100% of proceeds going to the Shoes to Share organization. The red-colored wristbands read "PSUMA + Care = Haiti." The SGA will sell the wristbands through May 1st; they will have a table will be set up on the sidewalk outside of the Science Techology building on Wednesday, April 28 and Thursday, April 29th, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. SGA President Tim Stroman urged in a campus-wide email, "Every penny makes a difference. On behalf of SGA we would very much appreciate your help in any way, shape or form."
