Local golfers donate to Blessings in a Backpack

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Local golfers took part in Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer's Give-a-Day program Wednesday by donating to Blessings in a Backpack.

"There are so many kids that need this program, and this is one of the steps that just gives them [the kids] a delivery system to be able to get the food home so they can be fed on the weekends," said Steve McMillen, Executive Director of PGA Kentucky. "As a golf community, we're just so thrilled that we can help out and be part of it."

The Kentucky Golf Foundation is the non-profit arm of PGA Kentucky. The Foundation asked golfers to bring backpacks to area golf courses over the last few weeks.

On Wednesday, the group dropped off nearly 2,000 backpacks for the program.
