Class of 2024 Gives

We want you to start your Penn State experience by making a difference in your new community! Please consider bringing a non-perishable food or personal toiletry item with you to NSO. This year, we're partnering with Lion's Pantry to provide support for Penn State students and State College community members who are in need on behalf of the Class of 2024.

All items donated by the Class of 2024 will be used to support current students and community members in the immediate vicinity of campus. There will be collection bins at NSO Check-In for you to drop your donation. 

Here's our wish list of donations, in case you need some help deciding what to bring:

  • Beef Soup
  • Vegetarian Soup
  • Creamy Soups
  • Chili
  • Canned Mixed Veggies
  • Canned Carrots
  • Canned Beans
  • Cereal
  • Olive Oil
  • Canola Oil
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Granola Bars
  • Pretzels
  • Nuts
  • Crackers
  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly
  • Pasta Sauce
  • Hand Soap
  • Dish Soap

At this time the Lion's Pantry DOES NOT NEED (but will always accept) the following: chicken noodle soup, canned green beans, peas, and corn, baked beans, pasta, mac and cheese, and ramen.
