South Hills Community News Release

STATE COLLEGE, PA – As part of South Hills School of Business & Technology’s long tradition of community service, students at both of its campuses hold several holiday donation drives and fundraisers to collect money and items on behalf of various charitable organizations in their local communities.

Each year, students team up with the United States Marine Corps and other organizations throughout the region to provide holiday presents for local needy children. South Hills School of Business & Technology's Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) Club and Information Technology Club recently teamed up and collected nearly 500 pounds of canned goods, toys, and other holiday items for the Centre County Toys for Tots campaign.

Meanwhile, in the spirit of the season, members of the newly-formed South Hills Veterans Club at the Main Campus in State College collected donations for the Veterans Multi-Service Center in Bellefonte, PA. The students collected cash donations as well as many requested items such as toiletries, warm socks, winter gloves, and more for veterans in need.

Barb Harer, Director of Student Affairs & Community Development and Coordinator of the Veterans Club, said, “The South Hills Veterans Club is made up of military students, faculty, and staff members. The group was established this year to help with the needs of our active and veteran military members, both at home and abroad. One way that we can do this effectively is to team up with organizations such as the Veterans Multi-Service Center. We are happy to help the VMC with its mission to help veterans in need.”
