“The Lead Team rocks! What a blessing for our community,” said Karla Yates, missions outreach coordinator at Oologah United Methodist Church.
Coach Brandon Craig and the players presented a $500 check courtesy of the Quarterback Club to the community food bank located at Oologah United Methodist Church.
Along with the donation the football players have also committed to leading the fight against hunger in the community. The senior Lead Team and the entire Mustang football team will take donations from the area for the food pantry. Donations can also be dropped off at the Oologah United Methodist Church Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekly.
The Mustangs will host a special food drive on Thursday, Aug. 29 during the scrimmage against Fort Gibson. Instead of charging admission, people should bring items for the food pantry or make a cash donation at the gate.
Certain staple items are always needed, Yates said. She encouraged donations of canned tuna, chicken, peanut butter and jelly, spaghetti sauce, Ramen noodles, boxed cereals (any kind), boxed macaroni and cheese, pancake mix and syrup, any kind of boxed meals like Hamburger Helper, Chicken or Tuna Helper, and soups of all kinds.
