Student groups promote charities

Student groups promote charities: "To combat this problem and get students more involved in philanthropy, the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) social awareness committee organized the first Civic Engagement Extravaganza to showcase student groups involved in civic engagement.

The Civic Engagement Extravaganza began Saturday with a showing of Jaws by Penn State's chapter of Amnesty International at the White Building. Throughout this week, about 15 other student civic groups will hold events to raise money and awareness of their causes.

Richardson, the event organizer, said the week helps smaller organizations gain publicity."
