Have you ever thought of how many people are involved in any given Friday night football game? Football players, cheerleaders, band members, student body, fans all take part in the nightly game.
Welsaco High School Head Cheerleader, Christyn-Jo Carranza and Weslaco East High School Quarterback Brandon Hernandez spoke more about their "Any Givin' Friday" community service project.
The two schools will go battle it out for bragging rights on Oct. 19th, but they are joining together for a food drive to benefit the Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley.
The purpose of the event is to bring attention to the needs of the citizens of the Valley and to collect food items to help offset the need.
The community and schools are invited to collect non-perishable food items and bring them to the designated drop-off locations at Bobby Lackey Stadium on the 19th.
The Panthers and the Wildcats may be rivals on the field that night, but they are working together to tackle hunger off the field and feed the Rio Grande Valley.
