THON Donation Stations Decorated As Different Seasons

THON has officially taken over the Bryce Jordan Center. Dressed in bright, vivid colors and socks that reach their knees, hordes of dancers and spectators have flooded the stadium. A festive vibe rings through the air as volunteers made their final preparations for the weekend. The spirit has even reached the THON donation stations.

This year, the THON donation stations are decorated as the different seasons of the year. The booths will be available throughout the weekend for spectators, families, and volunteers looking to make a donation. You can donate at the booths with cash, check, or you can pay online. Those wishing to donate can also text “THON” to 50555 to make a $10.00 donation.
