L-R: Ellen Petree & Laura Etheridge, BCSS Feeding Barrow Program; Pam Veader & Tery Overbey, Winder Barrow Community Theatre; and Dr. Ken Greene of the Winder Barrow Community Theatre & BCSS Assistant Superintendent of Student Services

The Winder-Barrow Community Theatre officially kicked-off the community awareness and fundraising campaign for the 2022-23 Feeding Barrow Program of the Barrow County School System with their $500.00 donation. They designated Feeding Barrow as a recipient of a portion of the ticket sales from Children’s Playhouse July 8-17 production of "Charlotte’s Web" based on the book of E.B. White.   

Feeding Barrow partners with local non-profit agencies to provide meal bags for students who struggle with food insecurity on the weekends. The nutritious and kid-friendly meal bags provide over 450 BCSS students with meals and snacks to carry them from Friday supper to Sunday supper each weekend. “We are thankful for the annual support of WBCT for this essential student support program, and to our caring and compassionate partner agencies for all of their support,” remarked Laura Etheridge with Feeding Barrow. The approximate annual cost to support one student for the school year is $300.00 and donations of any amount are welcome.
