In case you haven’t heard, Clay’s football game on Oct. 25, against St. Francis DeSales at the University of Toledo's Glass Bowl has been selected as “Goodwill Stores Drive to Victory Game of the Week” on Buckeye Cable Sports Network.
What is the Drive to Victory? It’s a competition to see which school can collect the most clothes, household items, computers, and even vehicles that will be donated to Goodwill. The only items that cannot be donated are televisions, mattresses, and any item that contains HazMat materials.
It’s simple. All you have to do is collect items and place them in the “Goodwill Drive to Victory Truck” located in the Clay High School parking lot on the west side of the high school – you can’t miss it. Items can be dropped off October 21-24, from 7 a.m.-10 a.m. and 2 p.m.-5:30 p.m.
The donations will be weighed Oct. 25 at noon. The winning school with the most weight will be announced Friday night during the game and televised on BCSN. The winning school will receive a $700 scholarship and the runner-up will receive a $300 scholarship.
Everyone wins; the items donated will be sold at Goodwill stores and the profits will be used to help people with disabilities right here in our community.
“So clean your closets out and bring in your donations. Tell your family and neighbors. They can help us beat St. Francis and help people with disabilities at the same time,” Clay Principal Jim Jurski wrote in an email to The Press.
Doors for the event will open at 5:30 p.m. with a buffet dinner at 6 p.m. followed by the awards ceremony which will honor the top 10 in points in all four divisions. Tickets are $25 each and must be obtained from Rex LeJeune, director of operations at ARP. Teams may call LeJeune at 419-680-5606 to obtain tickets and he will also have them available at the Racers Swap Meet at the Sandusky County Fairgrounds in Fremont on Oct. 26. There will be no tickets sold at the door the night of the banquet and the deadline for tickets is Monday, Nov. 18.
Drivers must attend the banquet to receive point fund money.
