YMCA of Centre County Backpack Program

If you want a registration form for this program go to  YMCA Backpack Program or email Doug Dyke at douglas.dyke@beasd.net.

Dear Parents: 
YMCA of Centre County’s Backpack Program for the 2020-21 school year is getting 
ready to begin! If you are interested in having your child participate in this program, please  
complete the registration form attached. The Backpack Program distributes backpacks full of food  
each Friday to ensure students have enough food to eat over the weekend. Each child participating  
will receive breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a snack for both Saturday and Sunday. 

Registration must be completed and returned to YMCA of Centre County-Moshannon Valley Branch: P.O.  
Box 426, Philipsburg,  PA 16866. If you have multiple children, please complete a separate  
application for each child. There is no limit on the number of 
children per household that can receive a backpack. 

We’re very pleased  to be able to offer this program as a way to give back and provide much-needed  
assistance to families in our community. You will not be asked to provide any financial information  
in order to participate. Additoinally, your name and personal information will be kept private and  
not distributed to any outside agency. 

I look forward to serving your child this school year! If you have any questions, please reach out  
to me at mcurtis@ymcaocc.org or 814-342-0889.
