100 Women Who Care Clay County presented Northview High School with a grant of $10,300 for its Backpack program.

The Backpack program is designed to provide food to students in need at Northview High School. Each Friday, identified students in need are given a bag of food for the weekend so that they have something to hold them over until school again on Monday. Currently, the program serves 70 students a week.

This grant will help to ensure that the program can provide meals for students for the rest of the school year and part of next year.
