WHAT: Centre County United Way in partnership with Penn State are thrilled to host an Over The Edge community-wide event. Over The Edge is a special events company that provides signature events for non-profit organizations around the world. Business leaders, individuals and community members are invited to raise donations in exchange for the experience of going over the edge of a prominent building. This unique event generates front page news, raises thousands of dollars and provides participants with a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

WHERE: Home to 107k Penn State Football Fans and the Greatest Show in College Sports™ - Beaver Stadium, University Park, Pa.

WHY: Centre County United Way believes that Health, Education, and Financially Stability are the basic building blocks for happy life and a strong community. Our mission is to ensure all Centre County residents have access to the essentials. 1 in 4 Centre County Residents rely on United Way funded programs. Prior to the COVID-19 Pandemic 17% of households were below the federal poverty line. An additional 28% fall into the ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) population. ALICE are working families and individuals, who earn more than the federal poverty line, a guideline that has not been adjusted for inflation in over 30 years, and are still struggling. In total, 45% of our neighbors were facing challenges in meeting their basic needs. The impact of the pandemic and the economy has resulted in a rising number of ALICE households. A strong, happy, healthy community improves the lives of all its residents. Now more than ever, our neighbors need our support.
