Day of Caring

The Gallery at Penn College

Scores of civic-minded Pennsylvania College of Technology students and employees fanned out across Lycoming County on Saturday, Oct. 3 – rolling up their sleeves at about a dozen job sites from Montoursville to Jersey Shore, from Newberry to South Williamsport – for the United Way's annual Day of Caring. Among the locations captured by PCToday cameras were the Williamsport YMCA, made spick-and-span with student-applied elbow grease, and Lions Field in South Williamsport, where a faculty-mentored group of sorority sisters buried a dark and timeworn paint job under a fresh blue coat. The volunteer effort (typical of Penn College employees and the students who represented residence halls, Greek organizations and campus clubs) added to a record-breaking day of assistance to 39 nonprofit agencies.
