Miley Cyrus helps with backpack program in Hazard

Country music singer and actress Miley Cyrus was in Hazard Thursday, May 20 to announce her involvement with the Blessings in a Backpack program.

The program currently provides backpacks filled with food to children who qualify for free or reduced lunch, according to the Blessings in a Backpack website. The children take this food home with them on weekends so they will have food to eat during that time, according to the website.

Cyrus was in town with her dad, Billy Ray, and the two helped pack food into bags for children from Walkertown Elementary and Roy G. Eversole Middle School.
