Total: More than 400 gifts have leveraged over 1200 Backpacks. Less than 200 Gifts to go.
Make your charitable end-of-year gift in support of Red River Radio by December 8, and you can help four organizations at once! Not only will your gift help to bring public radio to the communities we serve, but you will also help to pack three backpacks of food for food insecure children through your gift. For each donation you make - of any amount - our project partners will make a contribution to the Backpack Program at the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana, the Food Bank of Central Louisiana and the East Texas Food Bank as a heart-felt thank you for your gift to Red River Radio. Our challenge is 600 contributions, which will equal 600 backpacks of food at each food bank, a total of 1800 backpacks of food for kids! That means your single gift will leverage three backpacks of food for a child in need. The Backpack Program sends backpacks of easy-to-eat food home with children over weekends and holidays. We encourage all to make your gift of support now so we can fill backpacks with food for the hungry children in our broadcast region. Tune in on December 7 and 8 as we count down the final backpacks.
