|Foundation helps program|
Nicole Long, left, of the Perkins County Weekend Food Program accepts a check for $500 from Michelle Ross of the Perkins County Community Foundation Fund. The funds will help feed children in need on weekends through the Perkins County Weekend Food Program. Qualifying students pick up backpacks filled with food for the weekend every Friday and return the satchels every Monday. The program is hoping to bolster support this year to help more children in need at the elementary, middle and eventually high school level.
