MMS EAST Project to Help Foster Children

Four boys, ages 12 through 14, in the EAST program at Mena Middle School decided on a project to help the foster children in their community. Working with the Polk County Department of Human Services, they realized they could not afford to help all foster children.  They reached out to the Mena Wal-Mart and found an answer to one of the problems – funds.  Wal-Mart made a donation to their project and the students were able to purchase a few fun items to make the day a little brighter for two small foster children.
