Campus works with newspaper

9/12/2007 —

Penn State Wilkes-Barre and the Times Leader newspaper are working together to provide scholarship assistance to students that are attending the University. During their 100th year celebration, The Times Leader has developed a community-based anniversary program, where the publishing company has set aside $100,000 to distribute to non-profit organizations in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

By participating, you can make a difference in the life of a Penn State student. It’s a simple two-step process. First, call the Times Leader at 570.829.5000 and order a new one-year subscription or renew your existing one. Then, just tell the customer service representative to donate $25.00 to the Penn State Wilkes-Barre Scholarship Fund at P.O. Box PSU, Lehman PA, 18627. “When the Times Leader contacted us, I thought it was a fantastic way to build our scholarship fund program. We have a lot of students who depend on scholarship assistance to earn their Penn State degrees. This was a great way to partner with the Times Leader,” said Nora Blessner, Director of Development at Penn State Wilkes-Barre.

In addition, contributors’ names and the Penn State Wilkes-Barre name will appear in the Times Leader every day up until November 20th, 2007. According to the Times Leader, “Everyone benefits by getting essential news delivered to their doorstep. Plus, what’s important is that your favorite non-profit organization gets $25.00.”
