AT&T Gives Backpack Program a Boost

AT&T Gives Backpack Program a Boost
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Feeding South Dakota is getting a big boost for its Backpack Program.

AT&T presented the organization a $6,000 check.

Last school year, the Backpack Program helped feed more than 3,100 children per week.

Feeding South Dakota relies on support like this to make sure kids don't go hungry during the weekends when they're not in school.

"We rely on businesses, corporations, churches, civic groups and individuals not only to support us financially but to come out and volunteer with us," Backpack Program Coordinator Allison Struck said.

"While we're commercially successful it's important for us to be charitably responsible to the community," AT&T Vice President Hardmon Williams said.

The $6,000 grant will help feed 1,500 kids for one week or 42 kids for an entire year.

It costs around a half million dollars to feed over 3,100 kids each week for a year.
