Posted: January 22, 2009
LEWISBURG, Pa. – The Panhellenic and Interfraternity Councils in conjunction with their member sororities and fraternities at Bucknell University will present a check for $10,000 to the HandUp Foundation at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 28, at the foundation’s center at 275 Mahoning St. in Milton.
Sorority and fraternity members raised the money this past year through the Million Penny Project, which includes on-campus events such as the Wing Festival in April and the Iron Chef Competition in November. The Wing Festival was supported with donations from local restaurants, including The Bull Run Inn, The Towne Tavern, BJ’s Steak and Ribs, The Lewisburg Hotel, Vic’s Pub and Domino’s Pizza.
The HandUp Foundation is a faith-based, nonprofit and social entrepreneurial organization dedicated to the helping people in crisis in the Susquehanna Valley. The HandUp Foundation provides a “hand up” to individuals and their families who need help getting out of difficult situations and into a better way of life.
