Sherman/Denison Compete in Can Drive

Posted: Updated:

GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- In addition to the Battle of the Ax, Sherman and Denison compete in the battle of the heart which is a canned food drive that benefits our local pantrys.

The high schools have been participating in the food drive for over ten yearsand while Denison usually raises the most cans, it's all for a good cause. "We like to do the Battle of the Heart for our Battle of the Ax rivalry game. It's a great way to turn a good healthy rivalry into doing something great for the community," said David Little, a Sherman teacher. "We think it's a great program because it really helps stock our local food banks for this holiday season coming up," said Jamie Weems, a Denison teacher.

Denison has raised about 11,000 canned goods and Sherman says they expect a total of about 10,000. Denison's cans will be delivered to Helping Hands food pantry while Sherman's will go to the Salvation Army.
