Spikes, B94.5 team up to help local fire victims

Tuesday's drive to benefit victims of Waupelani fire
July 8, 2013

The State College Spikes are partnering with B94.5 to give fans the chance to help those displaced in the Waupelani Drive fire with a donation drive at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. The drive will take place on Tuesday during the Spikes' 7:05 p.m. game against the Mahoning Valley Scrappers (Cleveland Indians).

Fans can bring their donations inside the ballpark, with collection areas located at the ballpark gates. Items of particular need to the families affected by the fire include gift cards to area businesses, brand new clothing and diapers for infants and mothers, as well as books and toys for children ages 0-11. Any fan wishing to make a monetary donation towards the drive should contact the State College American Red Cross.

In addition, 95.3 FM 3WZ will be collecting gift cards at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park gates prior to Monday's 7:05 p.m. game against Mahoning Valley. 3WZ will also collect gift cards at their 865 Benner Pike studios from 9-5 p.m. Monday through Friday and at their live broadcasts from both the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts and the People's Choice Festival.

The donation drive will be part of the fun at the ballpark on Tuesday as the first 500 fans will receive cool Spikes t-shirts, presented by P.J. Harrigan's, on T-Shirt Tuesday. Plus, 16 oz. Yuengling and Yuengling Light draft beers will be available for just $2.50 apiece during the Yuengling Happy Hour from 6-7 p.m.
