GREENVILLE, Pa.—The Dietrich Honors Institute at Thiel College, a leading liberal arts college in northwest Pennsylvania, is collecting goods from students until May 5. The drive is collecting household items, small appliances, clothing, canned goods and similar objects and is intended to prevent gently-used items from being thrown away. Items will be donated to The Good Shepherd in Greenville, Pa.
Students can drop off items on or before May 5 at the institute’s office located on the second floor of Greenville Hall.
“The Dietrich Honors Institute is not only about academic excellence, but also community involvement and social service,” said Kourtney Polvinale ’16, who works in the Office of Admission and Dietrich Honors Institute. “We completed projects in the past that have reached the world at large by helping to stop malaria and sending money to refugees for clean water, and, now, we would like to do a project that sends a helping hand to brothers and sisters in our local community. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.”
The Good Shepherd is a multi-denominational ministry established in 1991 to serve the economically challenged of the greater Greenville community.
