    “Backpack Program”

    What some people see as a backpack, children see as a means of food for the weekend. No child should ever be hungry.

    We serve seven school districts with the Backpack Program: Philipsburg-Osceola, Moshannon Valley, West Branch, Bald Eagle, Bellefonte, Penns Valley, and State College.

    For more information on volunteering and donating to the Backpack Program contact Mel Curtis at mailto:[email protected]or call 814-342-0889.
