United Way of Blair County Assists Local Backpack Programs

The Land O’ Lakes Foundation awarded a donation of $10,000 to the United Way of Pennsylvania to alleviate hunger in the Commonwealth. United Way of Blair County was awarded a $1,000 sub-grant through this Land O’ Lakes Foundation Grant. Through this sub-grant United Way of Blair County was able to disperse the funds to three local backpack programs to help alleviate weekend hunger for Blair County school students.
