It’s a story that’s now getting national attention.
Sacred Heart-Griffin is still hoping to beat Washington in Saturday’s upcoming Class 5A football semifinal match. But between now and then, SH-G is doing what it can to make life easier for their opponents.
Several players and coaches from Washington were among the hundreds of residents there whose homes were destroyed in a devastating tornado last weekend.
SH-G is providing meals for the team before and after the game, and has also arranged for buses and food for fans who want to take a break from the cleanup effort to cheer for their team.
Other fundraising efforts to benefit Washington are also underway.
The winner of Saturday’s matchup will advance to the state title game Thanksgiving weekend.
