“Greedy” Williams and “Lee-Lee” Williams Team Up to help kids

School supplies are needed for upcoming back to school giveaway

By Sara Kleinecke June 7, 2018

Two college football players, who are brothers with ties to Shreveport, are gearing up to have a back to school giveaway on June 15th at The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club.  Andraez “Greedy” Williams of LSU, who is expected to be a 2019 NFL draft pick, and Rodarius “Lee-Lee” Williams of OSU, want to make sure the students at the local club, and children in the community, are prepared to go back to school with a backpack and supplies.

A community school supply drive is happening now through June 12th. The backpacks have already been secured. All items will gladly be accepted, but there is a specific need for spiral subject notebooks and composition notebooks.  School supplies can be dropped off at the following locations:


Sweet Frog Yogurt, 2113 Airline Drive in Bossier City, Monday – Sunday from Noon to 10pm

The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club, 2821 Greenwood Road, Monday - Friday from 10am to 5pm

The Salvation Army Corps, 200 E. Stoner Avenue, Monday - Thursday from 10am to 3pm.

Chick-Fil-A Youree Drive Family Night on Tuesday, June 12th from 5pm-7pm


The Williams brothers have a connection to The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club through a family member who coaches a community football team that has some students from the club.  On June 15th from 5pm-7pm the public is invited to attend the back to school event at the local club, 2821 Greenwood Road.  All students from The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club will receive backpacks, and there will be a limited supply available to distribute to the community while supplies last. The Williams brothers will also be available for photos.
