To assist the coronavirus hit students of the Penn state, Sue Paterno donated $1,00,000.
According to a press release by the University, 50% of the donation will go to Student Care & Advocacy Emergency Fund and the other half will go to the Lion’s Pantry, an initiative to feed the needy which began in 2014.
Paterno said that their goal was to spread inspiration among Penn State and the local community to support and help the students who are facing a challenging time.
Sue Paterno still lives in the home of the State college where she lived with her late husband and former head coach of football of Penn State.
Reportedly, she is closely involved in volunteering and fundraising at school. She is also a part of the Liberal Arts Alumni Society Board, the Liberal Arts Development Council, and the University Libraries’ Library Development Board.
Penn State’s president, Eric Barron praised Paterno saying she was not only helpful and a generous donor but an inspiration for all as she believes in fighting and overcoming the global crisis.
