Who will donate more food and supplies? The Liberty High School Patriots or the Issaquah High School Eagles?
Whichever school donates more, the clear winner is the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank, which will receive the nonperishable food and supplies from the drive after the Liberty and Issaquah football game Friday night.
Donations of nonperishable food and supplies, like toilet paper and toothpaste, are encouraged, Liberty activity coordinator and Dean of Students Michelle Munson said.
Associated Student Body leaders at each school agreed to hold the drive in honor of Sept. 11, which Congress designated as the National Day of Service and Remembrance in 2009, Munson said.
Students will place collection boxes at their schools beginning Thursday, as well as at the gates of the football game, held at Liberty, 16655 SE 136th St., Renton. The gates open at 5 p.m. and the game starts at 7 p.m.
During halftime, a parent will take the goods to the food bank, where it will be weighed and a winner declared.
