MIX 106 Cares for Kids Backpack Drive

On August 10th, Mix 106 held the 5th annual Backpack Buddy Drive to benefit The Idaho Foodbank’s Backpack Program. Mix 106 DJs Mike Kasper and Nicole Hanks graciously put in a 12-hour shift along with Idaho Foodbank staff and volunteers, going from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. The radiothon was followed by a food truck rally in Merdian, where 10 percent of the proceeds were donated to the Backpack Program.
