The YMCA of Centre County Backpack and Anti-Hunger Program is seeking cookie jars.

If you have extra cookie jars (of any type) that you no longer use, we would love to have them for a project we are doing.


The Backpack Cookie Jar project was the idea of one of the members at Moshannon Valley Branch.
He puts in any extra one-dollar bills he has each day into a cookie jar and donates them to the backpack program.

He and his wife started this when the grandchildren were young and they would give the grandchildren a couple of dollars in place of cookies.

This is a great idea and it helps make sure children have food for the weekend.

Our goal is to collect cookie jars and get these into the communities to make sure no child has to worry about food.


Thank you for your support of this project.
