MAKE A DONATION
Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
The Supply Logistics Committee is responsible for obtaining all in-kind donations necessary for the numerous events and activities leading up to and including THON Weekend. Supply Logistics Captains are dedicated to maintaining strong relationships with our donors, as well as bridging new donor relationships to procure supplies for all pre-THON events and THON weekend. We work with every Committee to ensure they have all supplies necessary to make their projects successful. Through donor contact, the Supply Logistics Committee raises awareness and spreads THON’s mission of conquering childhood cancer to hundreds of small businesses and large corporations. Supply Logistics directly impacts all aspects of THON's mission — providing emotional and financial support, spreading awareness, and ensuring funding for critical research — by helping THON cut down on internal costs. Additionally, Supply Logistics oversees the THON Raffle, Hershey Holiday Toy Drive, Operation K.I.D.S., the Gift Card Initiative, and maintains inventory of our four storage areas to help ensure there are plenty of supplies for all events.
Join us in our commitment to turn childhood dreams into reality by supporting THONTM. Our committee, THON Supply Logistics, is taking action by uniting with 16,500 student volunteers and over 25,000 alumni supporters in the fight against childhood cancer. Our year-long efforts culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon each February to celebrate our survivors, remember those we’ve lost, and take a stand--all in hopes of one day dancing in celebration of a cure.
Since 1977, THON has raised over $157 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children’s Hospital, providing comprehensive care for 4,000 families and funding critical research to take this fight beyond central Pennsylvania and spread hope around the world. We work year-round to provide both financial and emotional support for our families, ensuring that they never have to face cancer alone.
THON Committees play a key role in helping THON fulfill its mission of conquering childhood cancer. As Committee Members, students plan for and attend THON events as part of a team dedicated to making THON a success year after year, THON Supply Logistics, plays an integral role in the continued success of THON.
