DUBOIS – The Penn State DuBois Human Development and Family Studies (HDFS) Club asks for campus and community support in their latest effort to improve the lives of area residents. The club will hold a Campout for Hunger on campus on Friday, October 16 and Saturday, October 17. As they camp out along Route 255, students will collect donations for area food banks.
The Camp Out will end the canned food drive the HDFS Club plans to run during the first part of October.
“We want to make sure families in our community have something to eat this winter,” said HDFS Club member Brenda McGarvey. “This will be the perfect ending to our canned food drive.”
The collected food items will be donated to food banks in DuBois and Brookville.
Anyone wishing to make a donation may drop by the Campout on campus on October 16 from 3:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. and on October 17 from 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
