Residential Dining To Provide Free Hot Chocolate For THON Supporters In Line

During THON weekend, one of the most frequently asked questions is, “How’s the line outside the BJC?” In order to combat some of the frustration that comes along with waiting outside in the cold, Penn State Residential Dining will host a hot chocolate giveaway in front of the All-Sports Museum on Friday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. for supporters awaiting their chance to participate in THON.

“Penn State Residential Dining supports the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon’s mission,” Residential Dining said in a press release, “and the hot chocolate is a token of their appreciation for participants’ hard work in the fight against pediatric cancer.” Hopefully the free libations will make the wait a little better for those who are anxious to enter the BJC.

Likewise, Penn State Residential Dining will also donate 708 meals to the dancers on the floor, including 175 pizzas. If you can’t seem to find the free food, look for employees who will be wearing blue T-shirts that say “We Support THON,” and other volunteers who will be wearing stickers and pins.

Since there will be plenty of mouths to feed inside the Bryce Jordan Center this weekend, the free food is certainly appreciated.

With no canning weekends held this year and canvassing eventually suspended as well, this year’s total is a testament to how committed THON volunteers truly are.
