Grant Helps Backpack Program

On behalf of the Weekend Backpack Program, Henry County Alliance Administrative Coordinator Tara Wilson presents a $5,000 check to the Family Resource Center’s director, Becky Holland. The money was part of the state’s Three-Star program.

And that, the Weekend Backpack Program, via the Family Resource Center, provides about 160 children in three Henry County schools — Harrelson, Henry and Lakewood — with food for the weekends. The FRC provides the bags for children who primordially count on the school cafeterias for their most nutritious meal of the day; the bags guarantee they have something to eat throughout the weekend.
