WEAKLEY COUNTY BACKPACK DONATION – The Weakley County Backpack Program spent Tuesday afternoon at First Baptist Church in Dresden filling bags with non-perishable foods as a part of the county’s backpack program. The program was put into place by community activists to ensure children from low-income families had healthy foods over the weekend during the school year. The program has expanded to help kindergartners and first-graders across the county. The project is currently in need of monetary donations to purchase the food items. Donations can be sent to P.O. Box 169 Dresden, TN 38225 or brought to any First State Bank location.  For more information, call 514-0594 or 514-0858.
