Donors still needed for Gift Drive for Children
Donors are still needed for the Beaver Valley Area Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association's annual Gift Drive for Children, which is held in conjunction with Children and Youth Services (CYS) of Beaver County and benefits children who are CYS clients. Participants will be provided with the first name, age and sex of the child(ren) as well as a variety of gift
suggestions and, if needed, clothing sizes. The group suggests that each gift be in the $25-$30 range since the gift might be the only one a child receives this holiday season. All gift donors and recipients remain anonymous. If participants prefer, a monetary donation can be made instead to the Alumni Chapter, and chapter members will purchase gifts for the children on behalf of the donor(s).
