DAWSON, GA (WALB) -

Positive Direction, a community outreach group in Dawson kicked off their first Back Pack Program Thursday afternoon.

The group wants to make sure kids don't go hungry this summer. Every Thursday this month, they will pass out backpacks filled with food to get children through the weekend.

"This is very important for our kids because a lot of times children's don't have and to make sure our children in Terrell County that do have," said Director Dorothy Tomlin.

175 children are signed up for the program. It's paid for with a grant from the Arby's Foundation.
