The Downtown State College Improvement District is proud to announce that this First Friday will be kicking off Penn State's Military Appreciation Week. There will be several patriotic themed performances in the downtown, as well as an art piece honoring the brave men and women that serve our country. In addition, many downtown businesses will be donating a portion of their day's sales to the Penn State Military Student Scholarship Fund, and many of the same businesses will also be collecting donations for Operation Shoebox. Participating businesses will be listed soon.
