Mix 96.5′s Backpack Brigade Feeds Green Country Kids

CLICK HERE to make your donation online.

Mix 96.5′s Backpack Brigade is back and geared up to help the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma feed even more kids this year. Mix 96.5 is partnering with Oklahoma Central Credit Union and Scott & Kim Burnett of Burnett Home Improvement to collect 96 backpacks to help stock the food bank’s backpack program. The backpack program ensures that children who rely on meals at school have something to eat over the weekend. It is the most expensive program offered by the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma because every item in the backpack must be purchased to ensure dietary needs are being met. Each backpack costs $150 and provides food each weekend for one local student for a year.

Every donated backpack will be matched by Scott and Kim Burnett by Burnett Home Improvement. No gift is too small. Check back here and monitor our progress as we try and fill these 96 backpacks from November 1st – 26th.

You helped us collect more than 105 backpacks last November. Help us beat that goal! No Green Country child should go to bed wondering when their next meal might be.
