LOCK HAVEN, Pa. - Lock Haven University’s Campus Violence Prevention Program and Sigma Kappa sorority have partnered to show support for Clinton County victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. The two organizations are sponsoring a drive to collect toiletries for victims staying at the Clinton County Women’s Center. Donation bins will be placed in the residence halls, Stevenson Library, the PUB, Raub and Robinson from October 18 through October 22. In addition, Sigma Kappa sisters and The CVPP staff will have tables set up in front of Bentley to collect donations on Monday, October 18 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and again on Thursday, October 21 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students, faculty and staff can drop off toiletry donations at any of these locations. The items being collected include shampoo, conditioner, soap, body wash, toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss, feminine hygiene products and deodorant. Lock Haven University is a member of the Pennsylvania State
System of Higher Education (PASSHE), the largest provider of higher education in
the commonwealth. Its 14 universities offer more than 250 degree and certificate
programs in more than 120 areas of study. Nearly 405,000 system alumni live and
work in Pennsylvania.
The Director of The Campus Violence Prevention Program, Jennifer Bodnar, states, “October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, so we are hoping to shed some light on this issue while encouraging students to give back to the community.” Ms. Bodnar thinks “Partnering with Sigma Kappa was a natural fit because sororities have a strong bond in sisterhood and strive to help women meet their full potential.” Graduate Assistant for CVPP and former Vice President of Sigma Kappa Alicia Perrelli says “Sigma Kappa was always eager to help the community” when she was a member. Ms. Perrelli is “pleased to see this charitable spirit continues.”
Students, faculty and staff who donate items will be entered in The Campus Violence Prevention Program’s raffle to win items donated by Hair Concepts and That’s the Scoop.
