Penn State Joins ‘One Big Week’ Fundraiser For Third Consecutive Year
The annual “One Big Week” fundraising campaign is back for a third year, as Penn State hopes to continue its success in helping students achieve quality and equal access to education and student services.
The week-long event, organized by the Big Ten, will accept donations from Sunday, October 15, through midnight on Sunday, October 22.
Penn State’s involvement in the fundraiser will benefit students across Penn State’s 20 commonwealth campuses through donations to food pantries and other emergency funds. In 2022, the university raised a total of $126,414 through nearly 2,100 gifts, leading the Big Ten for the second year in a row.
“The Lion’s Pantry is essential for Penn State students carrying the burden of wondering where their next meal will come from, and having the support of our community beside us in this work makes a huge difference,” Lion’s Pantry Outreach Coordinator Madison Jackson said. “For me, volunteering at the Pantry contributes to the Penn State ‘We Are’ feeling and the sense that this University is a family.”
Penn State and Ohio State won’t just be competing on the football field this week. Beginning on Friday, October 20, and lasting until the end of “One Big Week,” the two schools will battle to see who can raise the most money to support their respective student pantries and emergency funds.
The Levi Lamb Fund, an organization that aids all 31 varsity teams in scholarship, medical, and academic support, will accept donations throughout the weekend on the website linked below.
