An East Tennessee non-profit organization that serves dozens of at-risk children and teens got a big boost from the community.
Food City and Coca-Cola donated $10,000 to Smoky Mountain Children's Home. The home will use that money to help buy a 12-passenger van. They'll also be able to purchase a maintenance truck.
The home says it's thankful for this donation and how it will benefit the children.
"They're coming and going all the time. These children have a lot of needs, emotionally, socially, and personally. All the corporate sponsors helps to make great things happen for these children," said Brenda Tweed.
The Smoky Mountain Children's Home has between 40 and 80 children at the home at any given time.
