Sunday night, a recently-taped episode of Celebrity Family Feud featuring the Robertson family of Duck Dynasty fame aired on ABC.
Although the Robertsons lost to the Mixons, they pocketed $5,000 for a charity of their choice – and that was Shreveport’s Hub: Urban Ministry.
“We connected with the Robertson family over a mutual desire to fight for people in poverty and trafficking in our state. They love what we do and decided to support us,” said Cassie Hammett, the founder and director of The Hub. “The Robertson family wants to change the world and we love that they use their platform to fight for those no one ever fights for.
“It’s a little Shreveport love. I love it so much. We’re so honored. It’s amazing.”
The Hub “exists to walk those in poverty through a process that gives them hope, friendship, community, a place they belong and the skills needed to become self-sufficient, which brings them value and worth.” It uses an earning based approach to ministry to “teach the value of hard work, participation and being held accountable.”
The Mixons were led by Katy Mixon, an actress best known for roles as Victoria on “Mike & Molly” and April Buchanan on “East Bound & Down.”
The Robertson were represented by Willie Robertson, wife, Korie, and their children John Luke, Sadie and Rebecca Robertson.
