In early October the NVGSA Firebirds 01 13u travel team sponsored a food drive for the needy and issued a challenge to teams far and wide. Whoever could deliver the most food would win a prize. The challenge was received with great enthusiasm and NVGSA really stepped up to the plate! 13 teams participated in this worthy event, with 1,073 pounds of food delivered.
The top 5 contributing teams are as follows:
Firebirds ‘01: 483 pounds
18u Fury: 189 pounds
Firebirds ‘03: 108 pounds
8u Firehawks: 78 pounds
12U Blue Devils: 65 pounds
Congratulations to everyone participating!
All in all everyone is a winner, many families in Fairfax county will be able to receive food for the holidays. The food was donated to the Echo Food Pantry on Old Keene Mill Road in Springfield. We already hope to double our goal for next year. All of the girls participating may receive community service hours that can be applied to their school community service hours.
