Youth center gets grant to help feed kids

Posted: Updated:

An after school program in Dawson gets a grant for a new program that begins May 26th.

The Positive Direction Youth Center offers tutoring and mentoring to help students succeed. The nearly $15,000 from the Arby's Foundation will help provide lunch and snacks for kids during the summer.

The program director says they appreciate all the support they get to help children. Dorothy Tomlin said, "Just so excited to have so many partners that want to be apart of wanting to donate wanting to give to just enhance what we are already doing."

Positive Direction is still signing up students to participate in their summer program.
