Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana's Backpack Program

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.

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.
