Helping Ease Local Poverty


YFCMH will be partnering with Matthews HELP Center “The House With a Heart”, to assist in providing needed items for their BounceBack Backpack Program.


“Many children will be receiving free or reduced breakfasts and lunches at school, but will have no food on the weekends. With our help, Matthews HELP Center will provide food for 60 identified children at three local elementary schools. The BounceBack Backpack program provides healthy, kid-friendly, non-perishable food every weekend throughout the school year. This food will not only supplement a hungry child’s diet, but may also ease anxieties, improve attention span, and increase academic performance. It is very difficult for children to concentrate in school when concerned about their next meal. The food provided through the BounceBack Backpack program may be the only food that these children eat over the weekend.”


In order to provide food for 60 children every Friday, Matthews HELP Center needs our support. YFCMH will be organizing food drives at all our home games. Bring a food item and receive $1 off gate admission!
