Sisters Of Phi Mu Set Up 24-Hour See-Saw At Allen Street Gates
Members of Penn State’s Phi Mu chapter set up a charitable see-saw this morning in front of the Allen Street Gates to raise money for its beneficiary, the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The 24-hour see-saw benefitting the hospitals has become a time-honored tradition ever since its inception decades ago.
The sisters say that many alumni return during the year, and remember the see-saw fundraiser as one of their favorite philanthropic activities. Throughout the duration of the year, the mechanism is stored in the chapter advisor’s house until being brought out for fundraising use, typically by way of large pickup truck.
The sisters have been see-sawing since midnight last night, and will continue on until the clock strikes 12 tonight to reach the 24-hour mark. Passersby are welcome to have a turn on the see-saw, even if they are unable to donate.
If you happen to pass by the Allen Street Gates today, the sisters of Phi Mu are encouraging people of all ages to stop by, have a go on the see-saw, and benefit a worthy cause. Donations are gratefully accepted for the benefit of CMNH.
