Dear Hero Program kicks off fundraising event Tuesday
By: Lauren Hensley
STATE COLLEGE, Pa.--Boosting the morale of deployed military, that is the mission of one Penn State student program. The Dear Hero program does this by sending care packages the men and women fighting overseas. The organization is challenging people to vote on their favorite branch of the military as a fundraiser. People can vote at the hub this weekend with spare change.
Our last set of care packages we sent out went to a lieutenant who graduated from here and he was thinking back to all of his time he spent here at Penn State and was so appreciative, Stephanie Everhart, with the Dear Hero Program said.
All money collected will go toward sending letters and care packages to troops deployed overseas.
