Lake Tansi clubs supply funds for backpack program


Submitted

CROSSVILLE — The Exchange Club of Lake Tansi has agreed to help fund the Second Harvest Food for Kids program at Frank P. Brown Elementary School with a $3,000 donation. The program provides food for kids and their siblings to keep them nourished over the weekend when they are not in school. Volunteers from the Exchange Club and the Lake Tansi Women’s Club have been going to Brown Elementary on Friday mornings to assist the school nurse in preparing the backpacks. Officials at Brown say that without this food many of the children would go hungry over the weekend. If anyone is interested in learning more about this worthwhile project or if anyone wishes to donate please contact Pat Sohmer at 788-2735.
