To celebrate Earth Day this year, a few of us got together (with our dogs!) to pick up trash at Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley.
Last year’s Earth Day park clean-up was a big success so we are excited to do it again this year!
Grab your dog (or a friend’s dog) and join us on April 20 at 10am to help us pick up trash at Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley. It is a great opportunity to enjoy the Spring weather, give back to the community & mother nature, and meet other Penn Staters.
As is our chapter tradition, throughout November we collected donations (both food & monetary) for the Orange County Basket Brigade.
Since 1995, this wonderful organization has been helping to provide all the necessities of a Thanksgiving meal which are given to families in need. This year we collected several bags of food (we had two full Trader Joe’s bags from Blue Beet alone) and over $250 from Penn State fans at JT Schmid’s and The Blue Beet.
On Sunday November 18, we’re volunteering with OC Thanksgiving Basket Brigade to treat families to a full Thanksgiving dinner who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford one.
To contribute to our Thanksgiving baskets, please bring an item of food to either of our football viewing parties (at Blue Beet or JT Schmid’s in Tustin) by November 17th.
Read on to learn more about this great cause and how you can help give back!
On April 22, five OC Penn Staters gathered at Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley to pick up trash for Earth Day – while walking our furry friends!
The weather that morning was perfect, and the gang enjoyed a nice leisurely walk through the park, bagging up litter along the way. Throughout the walk, we got to witness golfers and an agility competition, and spotted several animals like ducks, geese, turtles and squirrels.
We Are… Giving Back!
Each November, we join forces with Orange County Basket Brigade and help collect canned or boxed food items that can be distributed to families in needy OC communities.
Last year, the organization provided 200+ baskets! Will you help us give back and make a food donation or even help on delivery day??
We will be accepting donations at our November 4, 11, & 18 viewing parties. Please continue reading for more details on what to bring!
