Forty less-fortunate members of the Williamsport community – infants, children and senior citizens – will benefit from the generous donations to the Student Activities Office’s “Giving Tree.” It didn’t take long for the tree to be stripped of its gift tags after it was installed in mid-November, as Penn College students and employees visited the Bush Campus Center to spread the holiday spirit. On Thursday afternoon, The Salvation Army’s Steve Wenzel collected the donations, helped during the load-in by Allison A. Bressler, assistant director of student activities for programming and Greek life; Anthony J. Pace, assistant director of student activities for student organizations/orientation; Shannon L. Skaluba, information center assistant; and Jessica R. Wiegand, student activities assistant.
