Mix 106 Cares for Kids Backpack Drive
September 7, 2018 @ 6:00 am - 6:00 pm MDT
Mix 106 Radio’s 6th annual Cares for Kids Backpack Drive is Friday, September 7
6 AM to 6 PM with DJs Billy Jenkins, Charlene Herrera, and Jeff Connell
The Idaho Foodbank’s Backpack program distributes over 63,000 backpacks to school children who need access to nutritious food on the weekends. Every Friday, each participating child receives a backpack with enough food for two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners and two snacks. Meals consist of nutritious, child-friendly items that are easy to prepare and taste good! As a result of the help they receive through the Backpack program, children come to school Monday morning nourished and ready to learn!
Become a Backpack Buddy!
You can sponsor a backpack for a child in need for as little as $25 a month. That’s less than a third of what the average American family spends on soda in a year. Call during the radio-a-thon 208-275-8806
