BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The Darry Beckwith Foundation works year-round to ensure area student-athletes receive the tools they need to be successful off the field. This year, in the spirit of giving back, the community is encouraged to help support the foundation so organizers can continue providing youth with better educational and societal opportunities.

The holiday fundraising campaign specifically asks for aid to help support backpack giveaways, meals, mentoring, tutoring and other miscellaneous expenses.

“It’s a blessing to be a blessing,” said former LSU Tigers running back and campaign donor Orlando Gunn. “We are forever champions and I’m so glad and proud of (Darry) for helping change the lives of student-athletes one step at a time.”
