In addition to practicing blocking and tackling this year, the Daniel Hand Football Team also practiced some fund-raising and made a donation to the Madison Foundation to help keep their neighbors warm this winter.
This is the second year that the football team has chosen this project as their way to give back to the community by raising funds through sale of gift cards.
N2N is an all volunteer community-wide effort that provides families in need with oil, gas or electricity to keep them warm and keep their lights on. It was established n 2009 to make up for a cutback in state funding. N2N also supports the Madison Food Pantry by supplying all personal care items and provides scholarships to send kids to camp.
If you want to help too, you can send your tax deductible contribution to:
