Tis' the season for giving, and you can give the 'Best Gift Ever' to a local Acadiana family in need.

Most of us are truly blessed, but there are many who are less fortunate and could use a hand up this Christmas.

That's where you come in.

Hot 107.9 has teamed up with Coca-Cola and Associated Grocers to help feed local families in need this holiday season and throughout the year. Not only are we asking you to help out, but we're making it REALLY simple.

Just visit any Acadiana Associated Food Store and look for the pre-packaged red Coca-Cola bags near the registers. They're filled with groceries and only cost $10. Buy one of the red bags and that food will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank to feed families in need right here in our community.

Additionally, to further help you get in the holiday spirit, Coca-Cola has lined up their world-famous 'Santa Truck'—decked out with Christmas lights—to make appearances at several of your favorite stores with an appearance by Santa himself at each stop!

The truck will be at the following locations from 5:30pm to 7:00pm on the following dates:

  • Nov 27: Champagnes (Leonville) - 3802 LA-31 in Leonville
  • Nov 29: Champagnes (Duston) - 9103 Cameron St. in Duson
  • Dec 1: Janise's Supermarket -147 Oak Tree Park Dr. in Sunset
