FUNDRAISING & EVENTS

1/11

We are always looking for individuals, groups, and organizations to assist us with our fundraising efforts.  To get involved you can help with our current fundraising efforts or organize a fundraiser of your own.

Money raised from fundraising efforts helps us purchase food for the backpacks.

FOOD DRIVES

1/12

Hold a food drive to collect donations of items on our wish list.  Items may include ramen noodles, granola bars, raisins, pudding cups, oatmeal, etc.

We suggest you select one or two items from our list, so you are able to collect enough to help feed the average of 1,000 elementary students that are need in the Altoona Area School District.

For more information or to get involved, contact Program Director, Amber Smith at MountainLionBP@blaircap.org or 814-946-3651.
