Baton Rouge, LA – Several Southern University Ag Center staff members participated in ‘Red Nose Day’, a national campaign to bring awareness and raise funds to fight child poverty in the United States and in some of the poorest communities in the world.
The event, held on Thursday, May 26, will conclude with a live television special on NBC at 8 p.m. (CT).
Over the past 25 years, the campaign has raised over $1 billion globally. The 2015 campaign raised $23 million that funded programs designed to keep children and young adults safe, healthy and educated.
A ‘red nose’ can be purchased at a local Walgreens or Duane Reade store.
