October 23-- Tri-County Family Connection, Inc. will be having a meeting to discuss the Backpack for Buddies program on October 23, 2017 at 6pm at the Wheeler County Library.

Our committee, which is comprised of collaborative partners and local school administrators, invites the pastors of Wheeler County and a representative from local businesses to this meeting to discuss this program in detail. If you cannot attend, please send a representative from your church.

The Backpack for Buddies Program provides children from food-insecure homes with healthy weekend meals during the school year. The children, selected by school principals, guidance counselors, and teachers, will receive a bag containing balanced meals and healthy snacks at the end of every week.

Several counties in Georgia have this program in their community. In several of the counties, the local churches play a vital role in the funding and organization of this program. We currently operate this program in the Montgomery County School system with the assistance of local churches.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the Family Connection Director, Kristy Bennett, @ 912.539.0517 or email her: This email address is being protected from spambots.
