Shallotte,NC(WECT)- A non-profit called Wings Ministry has started a new program to make sure children are getting enough to eat on the weekends.
Founder, Missy Settlemore noticed there was a need in the Brunswick County area and started a program called the Backpack program.
With help from the community and lots of volunteers, the program is now in 7 schools in Brunswick County and they currently serve 785 children each weekend.
The schools in the program now are Waccamaw School, Union Elementary, Supply Elementary, Virginia Williamson Elementary, Cedar Grove Middle, Shallotte Middle and For Kids Only.
