The First Red River Radio Backpack Drive: 800 Backpacks Raised!

Nov 28, 2016

Red River Radio would like to thank everyone who participated in our special fund drive, partnering with the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana.   We surpassed our goal and ended early.  Thanks to an additional partner, Dr. Ratnam Nagalla Veluvolu who made a generous contribution in memory of her husband, we were able to leverage an additional 200 food backpacks for children, bringing the total number of backpacks to 800!  We also raised at least $55,000 for Red River Radio.

We thank our listeners, our volunteers, the area businesses who supported this drive and especially our partners:  Rabbi Jana and the B'nai Zion congregationKilpatrick Life Insurance Rose-Neath Foundation, and Anne Gremillion and John Gayle.

You can still make an end of the year contribution below.
