East Texas Food Bank

William Beckett / William Beckett

The dust has settled and we made our goal of 600 contributions and 1,800 backpacks, 1000 more than last year.  We also rose a little over $30,000 for Red River Radio.  Thanks to all who pitched in to help during our backpack campaign.

Wiley College students in Marshall aim to donate 15,000 meals to the East Texas Food Bank Friday as part of the third annual Fill the Bus Food Drive.

Students in the criminal justice honor society, Alpha Phi Sigma, are putting on the four-hour event to gather nonperishable food and monetary donations for the food bank.
