Football fans needed for can drive

Written by 

Pisgah and Tuscola football fans will have two opportunities to catch some football during county rivalry week on Oct. 6 and 7. The JV game will be in Canton on Thursday, Oct. 6, and the Varsity game will be in Waynesville on Friday, Oct. 7.

This year, at both games, fans can also help feed the hungry in Haywood County. At the entry gates at both the Varsity and JV games, there will be boxes marked P for Pisgah or T for Tuscola where fans can place canned and packed food items.

The food will then be weighed and the school whose fans donate the most food will receive a trophy. The food collected in the Pisgah boxes will be delivered to the Community Kitchen in Canton and the food collected in the Tuscola boxes will be taken to Haywood Christian Ministries in Waynesville.

The football game is the kickoff to the Waynesville Town Employee’s Pack the Pantry Food Drive. Later this fall, the food drive will involve the various classes at Hazelwood, Junaluska and Jonathan Valley Elementary Schools. In addition, the public will have another opportunity to donate food on Friday, Nov. 18, with collection stations at Ingles on Russ Avenue and at the Waynesville Crossings Shopping Center on South Main Street.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
