Students from the IUP Culinary School were out collecting donations last Saturday to help the Punxsutawney Area Community Center (PACC) raise money to purchase a digital projector to replace the old 35mm projector.
Pictured is Rob McCoy (center), PACC director, accepting a donation in the amount of $1,300 that was raised by students during Tag Days.
McCoy said that so far, $30,000 has been raised by various groups.
The cost of a digital projector is approximately $70,000, and the board of directors is hoping to purchase one before the end of spring.
The movie industry has announced it will stop distributing 35mm films sometime before summer.
