See what our partners are doing thanks to Cisco and their Flip Cam Donation: Arkansas Foodbank

Thanks to a generous donation from our partners at Cisco, we were able to provide many of our partners with a Flip HD Digital Video Camera so they are able to share and broadcast their work to their community more easily.
