During the months of February and March, The Giving Tree will be collecting items to donate to The Cambria County Backpack Project.  If you are not familiar with the program the following is its mission statement:

“To alleviate the burden of food insecurity and promote community well-being by providing children of Cambria County with healthy and sustainable food options on the weekends.”

Students receive a bag at school on Friday with food to last until Monday, if needed.  The following are food items that can be accepted:

Ramen or noodle cups
Snack-size Slim Jims
Jello cups
Applesauce cups
Fruit cups
Canned vegetables with a pull tab (so kids can open them without a can opener)
Veggie or wholegrain goldfish crackers
Shelf-stable yogurt (no refrigerated items)
Pudding cups
Single-serve cereal
Mac and cheese cups
Vegetable soup with a pull tab

Please drop off any donated items in plastic bin outside the church doors or stop during business hours and place items in the labeled bin in the church narthex.  Thank you for your continued support!
