Annual Food Drive for Cenla underway

SuddenLink/Altice and the Food Bank of Central Louisiana are kicking off the 10th annual food drive “Connecting To Those in Need” and need your help to make it successful this year. As you know, needy families in our community go without proper food, shelter, and essential medical care every day due to a variety of factors. While all of us are susceptible to hard times, children and the elderly are the most at risk, and they make up the largest number of clients served by the food bank and local pantries.
