Penn State Commission for Women is seeking donations as part of its participation in the Salvation Army Thanksgiving Basket Collection. Donations are due by Nov. 12.

Last year, the group was able to donate 41 Thanksgiving baskets to the Salvation Army thanks to the generous donations of those on the Hershey campus. Those interested can sign up to fill a basket individually, or with colleagues and friends.

Drop-off options are:

  • 7:45 to 8:45 a.m. Nov. 10, 2021: ASB north side/entrance off Hope Drive (lobby door)
  • 4 to 5 p.m. Nov. 10, 2021: Westview parking garage
  • 7:45 to 8:45 a.m. Nov. 11, 2021: ASB north side/entrance off Hope Drive (lobby door)
  • 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 11, 2021: College of Medicine Crescent entrance
    • Call Sherie Wylie at 717-531-7199 when arriving for this collection.
  • 8 to 9 a.m. Nov. 12, 2021: Westview parking garage

Items needed are listed here. One basket comprises the entire list.

  • Instant mashed potatoes (one large box)
  • Stuffing mix (one large box)
  • Cranberry sauce (two cans)
  • Turkey gravy mix (two packets or cans)
  • Green beans (two 14-ounce cans)
  • Mixed vegetables or corn (two 14-ounce cans)
  • Applesauce or fruit cocktail (one large can or plastic jar)
  • Jiffy pie mix and canned pie filling (30 ounces) or family-size boxed dessert mix (one-step, easy mixes are best)
  • Rice or noodles (1 lb. dry bag)


  • All non-perishable items must be properly sealed and not out of date.
  • Those donating should not purchase anything in a glass jar. These can break in the boxes and leave a mess.
  • Items can be packed in plastic or reusable grocery bags, or in a box.
  • Those packing should not add any additional items. All baskets are re-packed so they all look the same and can be given out fairly to clients.
