Rush for Food

August 01, 2012

Time to go grocery shopping and stock up for a good cause.

Your Clarkston High School gridiron heroes are collecting food on Friday, Aug. 17 for their 15th Annual Rush for Food.

Freshman, JV and Varsity football players will collect non-persishable food in local neighborhoods for Lighthouse Emergency Services in Independence Township to build awareness of a community need, promote team unity and give back to the community that supports them.

They will collect from neighborhoods from 6-7 p.m. and at Lighthouse, 6-7:30 p.m.

The gridiron gang’s goal is to collect over 4,800 pounds of food.

This event is organized by a parent volunteer committee, with support of the CHS football staff.

The committee thanks the Clarkston Athletic Boosters, Clarkston Chiefs and Kroger's on Sashabaw Road for donating supplies.
