The Eastern Tennessee Association of Realtors is challenging its members in Wilson County to skip lunch for one day and donate $12 to Wilson Vision through July 31.
A donation jar was delivered to several real estate offices in Wilson County. A $12 donation will feed a child in the backpack program for one weekend.
About 38 percent of the 20,306 students in Lebanon and Wilson County schools receive free or reduced lunch, and 1,310 students use the weekend backpack program, which is funded solely from community donations.
