HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Join us in our efforts to help our children rise above childhood hunger and succeed in school!
There are many ways you, your business, work place, or organization can get involved and support the
Mountain Lion BackPack Program!
We are always looking for volunteers to help pack food on Thursday evenings, volunteers for fundraising efforts, and other times during the year.

Update: At this time for the safety of our volunteers and staff, along with the state regulations, we are not taking any additional volunteers.
FUNDRAISING & EVENTS
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.
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 or 814-946-3651.
