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.
Nicole Hanks wrote a wonderful post-event thank you to the donors, program participants, volunteers and sponsors, which you can read here.
You can still donate online to this drive:
