Meet the THON 2013 Overalls: SL

As THON 2013 inches closer each day, I compiled some background information on each of the overalls. Today features Supply Logistics Overall Matthew Scorzafave. Also, make sure to watch the Supply Logistics Committee of the Week video at the end of the post!

Matthew Scorzafave, Supply Logistics

Current Year: Senior
Major(s)/Minor(s): Supply Chain and Information Systems/Spanish, Information Systems
Fun Fact: I have a clubbed thumb and an abnormally high belly button.

1. Why did you want the position of Overall, and why for the committee that you now lead?

I wanted to become an Overall for THON 2013 so that I can focus my attention and efforts to make the upcoming THON the best one yet. To me, there is no amount of hard work or time that is “too much” in the fight against pediatric cancer. One smiling kid is why I’m here. I want to help create that smile, even just for a second. I also think that this is an opportunity to not only make a difference in the life of a Four Diamonds Family, but in the entire Penn State and Pennsylvania communities.

As for Supply Logistics, I was fortunate enough to be a Supply Logistics Captain for THON 2012, and it really opened my eyes to the necessity for a committee like ours. We deal with a ton of in-kind donations throughout the year that are used by every single other committee so that all of THON’s various events are successful. We also have the incredible opportunity to spread THON’s message and mission to every single donor we touch throughout the year. We not only allow THON to save on expenses, we also are advocates for the entire THON community. I wanted to lead this committee so that we are being as proactive as possible in meeting the needs of THON from an internal standpoint, as well as fostering invaluable relationships with donors who allow THON to be as successful as it is today.

2. What are you most looking forward to in THON 2013?

As of right now, I am looking most forward to Harvest Day coming up next semester. This is an amazing opportunity for the Overall Committee and Family Relations Captains to play with the Four Diamonds children and their families in a very relaxed and personal setting. Though THON Weekend will be an amazing time for the families, Harvest Day is a chance to really connect with the families we impact every day.

Jim’s Army & Navy: The Greatest Store Ever

For those of you who have ventured onto the west side of Beaver Avenue, there is a good chance you have passed by Jim’s Army & Navy. If you are one of those people, your first thought when passing by Jim’s was most likely, “What the hell is going on in this store?” When a store’s window display boasts handcuffs (they even come in pink), switchblades, throwing stars, machetes, other swords, and ammunition, you really have no choice but to be utterly confounded. Little did I know that I was about to walk into the greatest store ever.
