DOC_unloaders3If you live off campus, then you know that Wal-Mart recently gave out a buttload of $5 gift cards to residents of State College. But what you may not know is that UPUA would like to put these gift cards to good use this holiday season.

Matt Smith, Chief of Staff in UPUA, has devised a plan: everyone who received a gift card brings it to the UPUA office (341 HUB); they then donate it to the State College Area Food Bank, where it is then used to buy food for the local needy and homeless. I mean really, what would you use $5 for? A bag of candy? Some Lysol wipes? It’s only $5, but if everyone donated their $5 it could make a significant difference in someone else’s life (that sounded corny, but it’s true)!

Even if you live on campus or didn’t receive a Wal-Mart gift card, feel free to pitch in. The drive ends November 17th, so do your part and make your school proud.

Kiwi Fro-Yo Comes to Penn State

The Kiwi Yogurt chain is opening its newest store right here in State College, next to the Student Book Store at 324 E. College Ave, this February (no word yet on exact date). Kiwi is a Maine Line, Pa.-based, family-owned company founded in 2008 set on providing “the ultimate dessert experience.”

And it is quite the experience. When you walk in, there is – prepare yourselves – a wall of frozen yogurt options. You get to walk up to this beautiful wall and vend yourself as many flavors as you like.
