The Island Grove Baptist Church Vacation Bible School raised over $1,700 for the backpack program at Pembroke Middle School. Children donated money to assist students at Pembroke Middle. The money provided will allow the facilitators of the backpack program to purchase much needed snacks and food for students in need at PMS. The Warrior family would like to give a huge THANK YOU to the people of Island Grove Baptist Church Vacation Bible School.
The "Backpack Program" has been making a positive impact in school districts across the country. In North Carolina, the "Backpack Program" has been implemented in counties such as Richmond, Moore, and Hopewell. There is even a "Backpack Program" here in Robeson County at Pembroke Elementary School.
