The reason for differing amounts is that some specific funds are earmarked to certain groups.
We also contributed 190 pounds of food to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank as part of our annual Food Bank Night.
The Club also collects can tabs and hotel soaps, shampoos and sundries for the Ronald McDonald House during the season. If you collect these, you can drop them at the table during any Bears home game.
We are proud to be able to do these things, and we recognize the contributions of all our contributors - we couldn't do this without you all !!
