DuBOIS – The Delta Mu Sigma Honor Society recently made donations to two organizations that have missions to serve children. A portion of the proceeds from the honor society's annual haunted house have been donated to THON, the Penn State dance marathon that benefits pediatric cancer research. Another portion was donated to Western Pennsylvania Cares for Kids, a Brookville based child advocacy center that helps children who have been victims or witnesses of abuse.

THON received $825 from Delta Mu, and Cares for Kids received $400.

"I'm honored to be able to help children who have gone through a rough time, or who are now dealing with illness," said Delta Mu chairman Adam Snyder. "We're trying to do our part to give them a little peace and a better life."

People representing the organizations who received these gifts expressed gratitude for the honor society's support of their causes.

"The children we see go through unspeakable experiences and to have the community recognize and assist us in providing them with a less traumatic experience when they talk about what happened to them is immeasurable," said Pat Berger, director of Western Pennsylvania Cares for Kids.

"This means the world to us because we start from scratch every year to raise as much as we can for the kids," said Rebecca Horner, chair of the Penn State DuBois THON Committee. "Everything people do to support us like this helps to make a better life for the kids."

The Delta Mu Sigma Honor Society organizes a haunted house each Halloween as a fundraiser for THON, and other area organizations. The honor society also reaches out to DuBois and the surrounding area each year by offering community service such as a "Dine Out" event at Luigi's Restaurant, with part of the proceeds benefiting scholarship funds, and by volunteering with organizations like Habitat for Humanity.
