Make your charitable end-of-year gift in support of Red River Radio by December 14, 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 800 contributions, which will equal 800 backpacks of food at each food bank, a total of 2,400 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. PLEASE DONATE NOW!
