Trojans hit the field for non-profits

Oak Ridge High School football has partnered with Football for Families in support of foster children in need, creating an event for the entire family.

Enjoy seven football games in two days at the 2012 Football for Families Showcase Event  on Friday, Sept. 7, and Saturday, Sept. 8, at Oak Ridge High School’s stadium.

The schedule is as follows:

Friday

Saturday

Part of the proceeds from the event go to support Football for Families and Sierra Forever Families, which are non-profit organizations that assist foster children in need. Football for Families is also collecting new and gently used backpacks for foster children. Bring your donation to the games.
