Voting Underway for Non Profit Grant

April 2nd, 2013 - By Steve James

A local non profit group has been chosen to compete in a grant contest sponsored by Wal-Mart.

The Weakley County Backpack Program, which helps provide food for county school children who may not have enough at home, was chosen to participate in the Wal-Mart Fighting Hunger Together program.

There’s 200 organizations across the country competing for the $20,000 dollar grant. The 60 who receive the most votes will win the grants.

To date, “Fighting Hunger Together” has provided more than $122 million in grants and 594 million pounds of food to communities.

Area residents can go to weakleycountybackpack.com to find the voting link.

Voting will be open until the end of the month and you can vote once a day.
