Did you hear the Good News this week?
The United Way of the Coast Empire held its annual meeting this week to celebrate the success of last year’s record breaking $9 million campaign… and to unveil the theme of this year’s, “Be The One.”
Also during the meeting, the United Way honored John Kane and Don Kole with the Spirit of Community Awards for being long time, dedicated volunteers.
But the best story from the meeting was about these exceptional students from Liberty County High School. They are a part of a program called Backpack Buddies and every week, they happily fill hundreds of bags of food for students, who have little to no food at home, to take with them to eat during the weekends. Over the past three years, the Backpack Buddies have packed tens of thousands of meals making life so much better for countless numbers of their neighbors.
