University Park, Pa. -- This Friday, Nov. 3, Penn State's Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) will host the first in a series of Philanthropy Phridays aimed at raising awareness in the University community about the important role philanthropy plays at Penn State.
Philanthropy Phridays, a year-long campaign, will be celebrated the first Friday of each month on the ground floor of the HUB between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Council member Matt Balaban said the event will provide students with a unique opportunity 'to enjoy free giveaways, food and the sharing of interesting information about the role philanthropy plays in our lives as Penn Staters.'
Each month's event will feature a unique theme showcasing the generous support of members of the Penn State community. November's theme, Penn State Firsts, will look back at history to reveal the start of many programs such as student endowment scholarships and the birth of the Schreyer Honors College."
