The varsity football team once again is taking part in “Crush Tackles Hunger,” a food drive to help give back to the community.
The program collects food at each school at Walton CSD, donates to the Walton food bank. On Friday, the program was shown to students at Townsend Elementary by six senior football players.
Noah Aubin, Morgan Condon, Dylan Jacob, Max Jacob, Nick Lamoreaux, and Cody Ray went to Townsend to explain the food drive to students, as well as ask them to bring a non-perishable food item to school.
The players, along with their mothers, deliver the food to the food bank.
Community members can donate to the cause by bringing a non-perishable item to the homecoming football game on Saturday as bins will be at the entrances to the game.
The homecoming game is at 1:30 p.m. Saturday against Harpursville/Afton.
