Penn College Athletes Give Back to Community

Being an athlete at Pennsylvania College of Technology means more than hitting a ball or scoring a goal: It means giving back to the community and, during the Fall 2016 semester, Wildcats completed 1,648 community service hours.

Wildcat athletes volunteered at 10 events, on campus and in the Williamsport community, and helped raise $1,575 for various charitable organizations. Organized by the Student Athletic Advisory Committee, all athletic programs participated in at least one event including walks to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s and sexual assault, marathons supporting the Salvation Army, cleaning up the Susquehanna River Walk and Logue Park, helping incoming students move in, volunteering at Firetree Place, hosting a youth soccer clinic, and participating in No-Shave November.

Last year, the department reached slightly more than 3,000 community service hours and is on pace to surpass that total by the end of the 2016-17 academic year.
