Backpack program looks for drivers to help raise funds

Backpack filled with food shown in a cubical in a local school.

It is the fifteenth year for the Corbin Backpack Program that provides weekend food for local children in need.  In Knox County, that includes students at Central Elementary, G.R. Hampton, Girdler, Lay, Knox Middle, Knox Central, and Lynn Camp.

The success of the program is made possible by many who help financially, and those who volunteer to prepare the backpacks each week.

Now, you have an opportunity to help raise funds for the program.  On March 21, from 9 am until 5 pm, Legacy Ford in Corbin will donate $20 for each test drive by a licensed driver.  Whether you are looking to purchase a new vehicle or wondering about features and upgrades on current models, this is a great way to experience a great ride while raising funds for the backpack program.

For more information call (606)528-1333 or contact the family resource director at your child’s school.
