Sports briefs: Stillwater football food drive set for Friday


Stillwater Ponies football food drive slated for Friday

The Stillwater football program is hosting its annual Food Drive as part of their final regular season home game against Roseville on Friday at Pony Stadium.

Fans are asked to bring non-perishable food items or cash donations to place in drop boxes available by the entrance gates. All collected items will go to Valley Outreach Food Shelf in Stillwater. Organized by the Stillwater sophomore team, the Ponies already collected and dropped off 2,170 pounds of donations to the Valley Outreach this past weekend.

The food shelf needs non-perishable dry and canned goods, including baby food and formula, diaper wipes and diapers, personal care items such as tooth paste/brushes, shampoo, soap, body wash and deodorant, household products such as toilet paper and paper towels and facial tissue, dishwashing liquid and laundry detergent.

Valley Outreach is a community-based, community-supported and privately funded nonprofit that relies on support from individuals, local businesses, churches, schools and civic and community organizations to maintain services and operations.


Gymnastics team selling gift cards for Rose Floral

The Stillwater Area High School gymnastics team has partnered with Rose Floral to offer gift cards redeemable for one free floral arrangement each month for a year as part of a fundraiser for the team. The gift cards sell for just $20 — a total of 12 floral arrangements — but only 300 cards are available so they will go fast. The cards will be available during the first week of November.

Rose Floral is located in Stillwater at 14298 60th Street North, just off Hwy. 36.

To reserve a card, contact Ponies coach Traci Swenson at [email protected] Checks should be made out to SAHS Gymnastics.
