Penn State Football Taking Service Trip To Guatemala In May

Twelve Penn State football players are scheduled to take a service trip to Guatemala in May.

The student-athletes are partnering with Soles4Souls, which is a charitable organization dedicated to providing shoes and clothing to communities in need.

According to the donation page set up, the twelve players attending are Dvon Ellies, Adisa Isaac, Dominic DeLuca, Curtis Jacobs, Tyler Elsdon, Liam Clifford, Tyler Warren, Malick Meiga, Theo Johnson, KeAndre Lambert-Smith, Keaton Ellis, and Landon Tengwall. Assistant Director of Player Development Lauren Geppert is captaining the crew on the trip.

Additionally, the players who are taking the trip have set a total fundraising goal of $42,000 to support their efforts. Each player participating in the trip is contributing to this goal by actively raising funds through various means.

While in Guatemala, the players will have the opportunity to distribute shoes to individuals facing poverty with Soles4Souls, which will work hand-in-hand with the Nittany Lions to ensure a successful trip.

Through their partnership with Soles4Souls and their outreach in Guatemala, the Penn State players’ dedication to service and their eagerness to make a difference in the lives of others is a testament to the values set forth by the program.
