Military Appreciation Week November 8-16, 2019

In partnership with Penn State University and Military Appreciation Week, Downtown State College celebrates and honors the contributions of our service members, veterans and their families!

Year after year, downtown business owners and community members have generously contributed to the Penn State University Military Student Fund on behalf of the Downtown State College Improvement District. This important fund offers financial assistance to military-affiliated students as a needs-based scholarship.

So, come downtown during Military Appreciation Week…dine, shop and enjoy military discounts from dozens of businesses! Downtown State College will provide free parking validations to all military service members and veterans who stop by during normal business hours at 127 S Fraser Street, or at the participating businesses. Validations are good at any of the three downtown garages.

If you are interested in contributing to the Penn State University Military Student Fund, please follow this link…https://militaryappreciation.psu.edu/
