Penn State Live-Penn State Erie students' efforts worth thousands

Penn State Live: "Penn State Erie students' efforts worth thousands
Friday, April 7, 2006

Students at Penn State Erie donated more than 1,000 pounds of food, volunteered thousands of hours and raised tens of thousands of dollars for multiple charitable organizations during the 2005-06 academic year. The Center for Service Leadership recognized these and other achievements by its students and staff at the annual service awards recognition ceremony in early April.

'This has been an outstanding year of generosity from Penn State Erie's students,' said Kelly Shrout, coordinator of community service and the Smith Chapel. 'Collectively, Penn State Erie students donated 1,356 pounds of food to the Second Harvest Food Bank, accumulated 6,522 hours of volunteer services and raised more than $20,500 for charitable organizations.'

The eight awards granted were based on the 135 submitted community service reports."
