Pressley Ridge in Western Maryland recently received a generous grant from the DelFest Foundation to fund the location’s Backpack Giveback initiative. The awarded money will be used to purchase the backpacks and items to fill them for kids in the Treatment Foster Care program.
The Foundation, headed by bluegrass music legend Del McCoury and his family, bestows funds to “worthwhile non-profit organizations” to “nurture a strong community, raise awareness of social justice issues, and support a healthy environment” in Allegany County, Maryland. Cumberland has been home to the DelFest Bluegrass Music Festival every Memorial Day weekend for the past six years.
