The Rotary Clubs of Districts 7280, 7300, 7330 and 7360 hosted a food drive in March to benefit the Mountain Lion Backpack Program. The staff at Mountain Research gladly collected soup, canned pasta, juice boxes and a lot more to help the Rotary clubs support such an important cause.
This is what Ashley Gay Vocco, program director for the Mountain Lion Back Pack program has to say, “We feed 1400 Altoona elementary children every weekend, providing each with 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, and 2 snacks. By nourishing children over the weekend, we are preparing them to return to school Monday morning ready to learn, free from the distraction of hunger.”
