Students, staff and employees of a local community college do their part to help put food on the table for those in need.
The annual Newton County Food Basket Brigade is taking place soon, and members of the Crowder College baseball team did some heavy lifting for that cause. They carried more than a thousand pounds of non-perishable items collected inside the school and placed it into a pickup truck to be taken to the Brigade warehouse. Third baseman Quinn Cherry says it’s the least team members can do to help the food insecure.
“It’s always good to help people in need you know, just kind of give back cause some people are take things for granted and it’s really eye opening to help others,” says Quinn Cherry, Crowder 3rd Baseman.
The give away date for the Food Basket Brigade is December 15th.
