Filling Backpacks, Fighting Hunger

CYS Advisory Board looking out for local kids

Members of the Cambria County Children and Youth Services Advisory Board recently donated $2,500 to the Cambria County Backpack Project to help keep local kids from going hungry. Board members held their 20th annual golf tournament this year and were able to raise $13,000, which was used to help Cambria County children and teens in foster care. Board President Pat Fyock said that up to 100 local kids may be in the foster care system at any given time and that the group has always worked to help those children in every way possible.

Organizations who serve Cambria County kids and teens and are interested in receiving future support through the CYS Advisory Board’s efforts may contact board President Pat Fyock at (814) 255-1070.
