The FRN provided 134 WVU cinch sack weekend food bags to Center McMechen Elementary! Thank you to both the Mountaineer Food Bank and the WVU Center for Service and Learning for making this collaboration possible. The WVU Center for Service and Learning purchased product from the food bank, WVU incoming freshman packed the weekend food bags at their orientation, and the Marshall County FRN distributed the bags to Center McMechen. The MCFRN was a proud recipient of this project!
