Backpacks help family of 6

Monday, September 14, 2020

The Backpack program truly impacts the youth of our community. 

One family lost their house in a fire in January. This family has four children and live paycheck to paycheck. As well, they do not have any family in the area to support them. Obviously the backpacks were needed as they lived in the motel until they could find a place to rent.

At 9:00 am on Mondays and Tuesdays during the school year, volunteers come together to assemble the food bags that will provide 700 Wilkes County children seven nourishing meals for the weekend.
