Baseball team strikes out hunger

Posted

The Madisonville baseball team is once again striking out hunger this Lenten season with a food drive to benefit the Son-Shine Outreach Center in Madisonville.

For the second straight season, the team will be accepting non-perishable donations during home games between now and April 10. A container for the donations will be set up at the gate upon entry. The drive officially began with the team’s season opener against Malakoff Feb. 24.

Coach Adam Borgfeld, who ran a similar food drive for seven years while coaching at La Vernia ISD, jumpstarted the project during his first season at the helm in Madisonville last year.

“I try to teach these kids the importance of giving back to the people that give to you and to help the community out as much as we can,” said Borgfeld. “We are blessed, so this is one way to help out. I know (the Son-Shine Center) is always in need of supplies, so this is our way of giving back.”

Suggested items provided include canned protein, such as tuna, chicken, chili, soup, PB&J, dry goods, such as sugar, crackers and flour, boxed meals, such as hamburger or tuna helper and canned vegetables.

The current matchups scheduled to take place at MHS between now and April 10 include: Buffalo, March 10; Caldwell, March 19; Taylor, March 24 (Little League Night); Fairfield, March 27; Rusk, March 31; Palestine, April 7

For further details, or to arrange a drop off or pick up, contact Coach Borgfeld at aborgfeld@madisonvillecisd.org.
