Alumni Chapter invites public to participate in children’s gift drive

The Beaver Valley Area Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association is conducting its annual Gift Drive for Beaver County Children and Youth Services (CYS). Participants will be provided with the first name, age, and gift preferences of a child and will purchase, wrap, and deliver the gift to Penn State Beaver.

The chapter requests that each gift have a value of $25 to $30. In lieu of buying a gift, participants have the option of making a cash gift which will be used by Alumni Chapter members to buy and wrap presents. To receive the first name of a child and his/her gift suggestions, contact Diane Canning at 724-375-2474; Cindy Hovanec at 412-370-2884 or 724-378-7448; or Cheryl Yevak at 724-695-2297 or 412-600-1424.

On each wrapped package, donors must include a gift tag stating the child’s first name and the caseworker code. Gifts must be dropped off from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, or 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Dec. 7, in the Beaver campus Student Union Building, room 16. Donations can be made in cash or by check payable to Beaver Valley Area Chapter PSAA and mailed to Office of Campus and Community Relations, Penn State Beaver, 100 University Drive, Monaca, PA 15061.
