How City of THON helps spread awareness of THON™

The State College Borough helps us spread awareness of THON™ through Local Reading Campaign, where THON™ volunteers were able to Zoom into State College elementary classrooms, and read the kids “The Nittany Lion Goes to THON™”. Along with this, we also made Kids Mail and explained what THON™ is and why we THON™ to the kids!

The City of THON™ also put up banners on lampposts about THON™ to spread awareness for our mission to the community!
