Hollidaysburg football participates in USPS food drive

Written by: on Saturday, May 12th, 2018

 

It’s a Hollidaysburg football yearly tradition to work at the food pantry to unload and sort thousands of pounds of donated food through the nationwide United States post office food drive on the second Saturday of May each year. Gus Dellinger, Trevor Mitchell, Nate Fisher, Brock Irvin, Nick Yingling and Sam Haynes were among 25-30 Hollidaysburg players who were there to help the USPS.  The American Rescue Workers of Hollidaysburg host the local food pantry.

“Once the US mail carriers drop off the donated food by those that donate at their mailboxes we unload it to the trucks we weight the donations and keep a running tally. We then sort the different foods into different containers. Some of the containers include pasta sauce, meal kits, vegetables, canned fruit,canned meats such as tuna, pasta, cereals, etc.” said Hollidaysburg Head Coach Homer DeLattre.

“It’s a great way for the kids to get together off the field and the weight room.  In the spring this is where we sort of kick off the summer outside the weight room. They work hard all winter and the kids to a great job of working together, you get some team bonding.  Its a pretty busy day. We worked 10-12:30 and then the second shift worked 12:30 till 4 because we wanted to get it done.  It’s something we do every year. I’d like to see a lot more teams get involved in this.  It’s a great bonding time for the players to work together for a great cause” said DeLattre.

This year they sorted over 7000 pounds of donations.
