Local volunteers gathered at the Dresden First Baptist Church Family Life Center Tuesday, Sep. 4, to pack food bags for area school age students.

 

The mission of the program is to help alleviate child hunger in Weakley County, by providing nutritious and easy-to-prepare food at times when other resources are not available, such as on the weekend and school vacations.

 

The Backpack Program not only supplies food, it also provides unconditional love to children by faithful volunteers who give their time and efforts each month.
