Warrior Food Fight Benefits Food Bank


Members of the Yellowstone Valley Trailblazers 4-H Club, Savage Student Council and Fairview basketball team are pictured with a small portion of the food that was donated during the Warrior Food Fight food drive which was held to benefit the Richland County Food Bank.

The Yellowstone Valley Trailblazers 4-H Club teamed up with the Savage School Student Council to hold a food drive for the Richland County Food Bank. The Yellowstone Valley Trailblazers had originally planned to host a Parade of Lights and a free will soup feed with proceeds to benefit the food bank, but winter weather prevented the event from taking place.

Still wanting to help with the shortage at the food bank, the 4-H club contacted Savage school to see if they would be willing to partner with the food drive and help collect non-perishable items at the two remaining home basketball games before the Christmas break. The school jumped at the opportunity and offered a discount at the concessions stand for fans who brought food items to the game against the MonDak Thunder.

For the next basketball game against Fairview, fans were challenged to a Warrior Food Fight in a twist of the shared team mascot. Savage Student Council and the Yellowstone Valley Trailblazers offered a $100 gift certificate for a root beer float party to the winning school. Fans from both sides brought sacks full of donated items. Although Savage won the food fight contest and the root beer float party, the real winners are those who will benefit from the generosity of both communities.

In all, 487 pounds were delivered to the Richland County food bank. Thank you to the MonDak Thunder, Fairview Warrior and Savage Warrior fans as well as the Savage Student Council in helping the Yellowstone Valley Trailblazer give back to the community.
