Letter to the Editor
Football players’ food donations much needed

September 11, 2013

Dear Editor,

On Aug. 16th, Clarkston High School Football sponsored the 16th annual Rush for Food to benefit the Lighthouse Clarkston food pantry.

The football players collected 6,397 pounds of food that was sorted, boxed and stacked ready to be distributed to low income families in the upcoming months.

JV and Varsity players drove through area neighborhoods collecting bags of food while the freshman players sorted and boxed the food. All of this hard work was accomplished in just three hours!

Each year our office relies on this food drive to restock the pantry shelves that have been depleted during the lean summer months.

We send a sincere thank you to the players, parents, coaches and the community for another successful Rush for Food!

Connie Stapleton

Manager, Lighthouse Clarkston
