Beta Sigma Chapter presented veterans across our Penn State Campus area with veterans bags with personal care items, puzzle books, pens, and snacks for Christmas. In all 98 bags were distributed. Thank you to Marianne Adams, Kim Streiff, Gwen Holderman, Pam Lawson, Sharon LaCue and Cathy Dillen for working with our Penn State students to pack the veteran backpacks provided by Beta Sigma.

 

 

There’s a new place to kick back and enjoy nature on campus at Penn State Altoona, and while you’re there you may run in to some of the kids who had a hand in creating it.            

The sensory garden, located between the Hawthorn Building and the Eve Memorial Chapel, was constructed as a part of a Beta Sigma Nursing Honor Society service project under the direction of Cathy Dillen, instructor in nursing.  Dillen and second degree nursing students have worked with the Sense-ational Endeavors program from its inception in 2011, and the garden is an extension of that collaboration. The camp, part of the college’s summer Kids’ College, is a two-week sensory-based educational enhancement program tailored to the needs and interests of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

ALTOONA, Pa. — Penn State’s College of Nursing Honor Society, Beta Sigma, selected the Jared Box Project as its spring 2016 service project. The goal of the program is to lift the spirits of children in hospitals by giving them a small plastic storage box filled with games, toys and other activities.

The Jared Box Project was started in 2001 by children at Our Lady of Victory School in State College to honor Jared McMullin, who lost his battle with brain cancer at age 6.
