Bagging the Joy for the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank

12.13.2012  |  Bagging the Joy for The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank


Baton Rouge Coca-Cola has partnered with the Food Bank, AG, Independent Supermarkets, Clear Channel radio stations WFMF, WYNK Country, WJBO News Talk, and KRVE 96.1 THE RIVER and WAFB-TV to collect food items until the end of the year for the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank!




We’ve  scheduled 16 radio remotes at local supermarkets with the Coca-Cola Santa truck and Santa himself to push bag sales and collection of canned goods and money beginning next week through Christmas!  WAFB-TV will come aboard on December 1st to start promoting this on TV, and based on the job they’ve done promoting Toys for Tots in the past, I am confident they’ll do the same for this initiative.



In 2 hours, 43 volunteers from Baton Rouge Coca-Cola, Capital One Bank, Entergy, 2 Food Bank regular volunteers, and 15+ Associated Grocers’ employees totaled 2,000 finished bags!!!
