Of the 95,370 individuals facing hunger in northwest Pennsylvania, 31 percent of them are children under the age of 18. These children depend on Second Harvest's BackPack and School Pantry Programs to ensure that they are receiving adequate nutrition.
Your donation will make the difference between hungry children unable to concentrate on their school work and children who are ready to learn and play.
Plus - thanks to the GEICO Philanthropic Foundation, our generous supporter - your donation will be matched dollar for dollar (up to $15,000).
Last year Second Harvest provided 62,302 BackPacks and 35,562 meals through School Pantries to students throughout northwest Pennsylvania.
Please open your heart to these children in need. Your donation will truly make a difference for our most vulnerable young ones.
