Shenango to collect mittens and hats during Hermitage Light Up Night Parade

SHARON, Pa. — For the seventh year in a row, Penn State Shenango faculty, staff and students will be collecting mittens, hats, and socks to be donated to Joshua’s Haven, the Prince of Peace, and West Hill Ministries, as part of its “Operation Warm Hands” during the Hermitage Light Up Night Parade on Saturday, Nov. 18.

Please consider participating in this event, so no child or adult in our community goes without warm clothing this winter. Look for the Penn State Shenango holiday float this Saturday at 6 p.m. on East State Street in Hermitage, Pennsylvania.

Donations will also be accepted through Dec. 8 at the Shenango campus in the Academic and Career Planning Services Office, Sharon Hall room 201, located on Penn Avenue in downtown Sharon. For more information, call 724-983-2860.
