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.
