Pirates, Hermits to compete in food drive

For the Thanksgiving Day football game against St. Augustine Prep, Cedar Creek will be hosting a canned food collection. Students and fans are encouraged to bring in nonperishable foods. The Creek is challenging St Augustine in a food drive. Who will collect the most? The entire collection will go to the Community FoodBank to help local victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Cedar Creek All Sports Varsity Booster Club will collect change at the football game, which starts at 10 a.m. Thursday at Cedar Creek High School. There will be coin drop stations at the two Cedar Creek driveways and at the ticket gates. All of the money collected will go to the American Red Cross of New Jersey to assist with their efforts in helping New Jersey recover from Hurricane Sandy.
