Make a difference in the life of a child.
Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our committee, THON Supply Logistics, is taking action by uniting with 16,500 student volunteers to raise funds and awareness in the fight against childhood cancer. Since 1977, THONTM has raised over $180 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children's Hospital. Throughout our partnership, we have ensured that over 4,000 families have not seen a single medical bill. In addition, the local research that is being done is making a global impact so that one day, we will find a cure. Each February, THON's yearlong efforts and support for the families culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon.
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 the 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 an inventory of our four storage areas to help ensure there are plenty of supplies for all events.
