MONT ALTO (Oct. 11, 2019) – Penn State Mont Alto men’s soccer program is collaborating with the New Hope Shelter to raise money and support for the local organization. The event on Monday is in conjunction with the Stand for State Awareness against Patrick Henry College.
Stand for State is a Penn State initiative to raise awareness about sexual and relationship violence, acts of bias, mental health, and drinking and drug use.
During the game, there will be giveaways including wireless speakers, wireless phone charges, food and drinks on the hills. Health Services will have an information table.
Waynesboro’s nonprofit New Hope Shelter provides temporary housing for the homeless from Franklin, Fulton, and Adams counties.
It operates year-round and serves about 150 people a year of which one-third are children. Every resident is provided encouragement and the tools necessary to find employment and permanent housing.
The Mont Alto soccer team will have a table set up along the hill to take donations. In addition to money donations, New Hope needs cleaning supplies, paper products, personal care items, laundry detergent and canned goods.
