Dodge Ball for Donations

One of the biggest fundraisers for Marietta High School and the most food ever donated to the food pantry at once.

Every year, M-H-S Students Against Drunk Driving, or SADD, program puts on a dodge ball fundraiser. To get into the game you must donate one food item or a dollar.

This year it all goes to the Gospel Mission Food Pantry.

SADD students and the food pantry organizers were overwhelmed with the student's donations. Both organizations say this is the largest donation they've been apart of.

"It feels really, really good, it's just amazing to know we've helped a lot of people out this holiday season and that the food pantry is going to be stocked," explains one SADD program member, Amelia Guliuck.

The seniors ended up winning the dodge ball tournament.

SADD brought in nearly 400-dollars and thousands of items for the Gospel Mission Food Pantry to feed families this Holiday season.
