As many of you are aware, Garrettsville, our neighbor to the South, was devastated by a fire in the main block of their city square. In an effort to help support the Garrettsville Food Bank, which was one of the buildings ruined in the fire; the Hiram College Football Gridiron Club, the Football team, and Men’s and Women’s Soccer teams are hosting a Food Drive this Saturday throughout the Homecoming Games. Anyone who comes to the trailer and donates $10 or 10 items will be entered into a raffle for $50 in gift cards.
