NILES, Mich. - The Niles branch of the Salvation Army received a large donation to help make sure schoolchildren do not go hungry.
Through the Saving the Sheep Project, the Salvation Army sends backpacks of food home with children over the weekend, when they cannot get a free school lunch.
Precision Pipeline and Enbridge have been contributing to the program.
Today, they presented the non-profit with a check for more than $11,000.
The Save the Sheep Project serves 249 children in the Niles, Buchanan, and Brandywine school systems.
