Two local businesses have shown their support for the Feed for Success backpack program at Weirton Elementary. Ted Ameredes of Ted’s Plaza Pharmacy and Jim Karnoupakis of Citizen’s Pharmacy recently contributed $500 toward the program. Pictured, Shanna Earley, program coordinator, accepts the donation from Ameredes. Feed for Success is designed to meet the needs of local hungry children on weekends when other resources are not available. It provides bags filled with food that is child-friendly, shelf-stable and easily consumed. Bags are packed each week by staff and volunteers. — Contributed
