Hi, I am Monty! I wanted to tell you a little bit more about what we do. Mountain Lion BackPack Program (MLBP) equips students to be physically and mentally prepared to learn by addressing one important need, food! I mean who doesn't need a snack break when you're working hard, am I right? MLBP staff and volunteers utilize donations to pack an average of 1,000 backpacks every week full of food to send home with Altoona Area elementary students on Fridays for all 35 weeks of the school year.
