Phi Theta Kappa Collects Pet Supplies for Local SPCA


Students in the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society chapter at Pennsylvania College of Technology recently collected pet supplies for donation to the Lycoming County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, one of many such community-service projects the group performs.

The students placed collection bins at two locations on Penn College’s main campus and another at the Lumley Aviation Center at the Williamsport Regional Airport in Montoursville.

The supplies, which included canned and dry food for dogs and cats, towels, blankets, paper towels, cleaning fluid, bleach and copy paper, were given to the SPCA on April 9. Helping to load the supplies onto the SPCA truck were Phi Theta Kappa members Victoria L. Stryker of Williamsport, Business Management; and Donna M. Hawkins of Trout Run, Nursing. Stryker is also a volunteer coordinator for the SPCA.

Faculty advisers for the Phi Theta Kappa chapter at Penn College are Linda L. Crayton and Pamela B. Schappert, associate professors of maternal/child health nursing.

“This community service project supports PTK’s mission of service to others,” Crayton said. “Previous PTK community-service projects have been directed at agencies that serve people with specific needs in this area. Our members saw this project as an opportunity to meet the needs of a population that sometimes goes unnoticed.”

Phi Theta Kappa also has collected personal-care packs for the YWCA’s women’s shelter, participated in the Healthy Kids Day at the YMCA and held various fund-raisers.
