Alliance BackPack grant

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

The Weekend Backpack Program, through the Family Resource Center, provides approximately 160 children in three Henry County schools — Harrelson, Henry and Lakewood — with food for the weekends. The FRC provides the bags for children who primarily rely on the school cafeterias for their most nutritious meal of the day; the bags ensure they have something to eat throughout the weekend.
