Supply The Fight

The Supply the Fight initiative is a collection drive for supplies that are crucial to THON’s success but are often hard to obtain. The THON community is encouraged to donate items found on the THON 2022 Supply the Fight registry. You can purchase directly from the registry or bring the items to the THON Office (227D HUB). Donations can be credited to an org, IDC, committee, alumni, or Commonwealth Campus. Your donations help reduce internal costs to ensure that 96 cents of every dollar fundraised directly benefits the families and THON’s mission. For more information contact or visit

Lions Pride FTK

Lions Pride is a Penn State tradition supplying the community with Penn State gear since 1976! From February 1 until THON, Lions Pride will donate 20% of proceeds to THON online and in-store. Mention THON at the register or add the linked promotion to your cart using the link below.
