Penn State graduate students and staff from McLanahan’s in downtown State College raised $25,000 for Prevent Child Abuse Pennsylvania, the result of the store selling T-shirts for a “blue-out” during Penn State’s football game against Nebraska.
Students Stuart Shapiro and Laura March organized the Nov. 12 blue-out to raise awareness about child abuse.
The move came in response to the child sexual abuse allegations against former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky.
Information on the number of T-shirts sold and what the money will be used was not immediately available Wednesday.
T-shirts are still for sale at McLanahan’s for $9.99 apiece.
