Huskies Kicking Hunger



Area Businesses are teaming up with 97.5 WQBE and Herbert Hoover High School to help the Mountain Mission Food Bank.

We are looking for additional sponsors to join us to help this wonderful cause.

The monetary donations from sponsors will be a “write off” because of the 501c3 tax status. These monetary donations will be used to purchase additional canned food and perishable food items and some will go to the Herbert Hoover athletics department and Project Graduation.

The sponsors will receive recognition over the Hoover Jumbo Score Boards at home games that are being played this fall at Hoover. They will also receive recognition on Hoover’s Social Media platforms as well as WQBE’s social media platforms.

When the floods hit Elkview and Clendenin back in 2016, the Mountain Mission Food Bank was one of the 1st organizations that showed up to help. They helped with food, water, and clothing. This is a way for us to say THANK YOU and PAY IT FORWARD, and at the same time, help Herbert Hoover and Project Graduations at the school.

We want to make this exciting for the students at the school to ‘get behind’ and support to make it a huge success, so here is how it is going to work:

  1. Each graduation class (Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Seniors) will be collecting canned food for the Mountain Mission Food Bank at each of the home games beginning on September 15th.
  2. Beginning on Monday, September 18th, they will also be collecting canned food at the school. Each graduating class will compete against each other to see who can collect the most cans for the Mountain Mission Food Bank. Every week, cans will be counted and collected. Every two weeks, the class with the most cans at those counts will receive $500 for their PROJECT GRADUATION. On November 3, the class that collected the most cans overall will receive an additional $2,500 for their PROJECT GRADUATION.
  3. At the last home football game on November 3, a student chosen from each graduating class will compete against each other in the Husky Challenge. Each class representative will toss footballs into giant cans. The student that tosses the most footballs into giant cans in 60 seconds will win $2,500 towards their PROJECT GRADUATION.
  4. On November 3, Athletic Director Richard Parsons will be attempting to make a field goal from the 13-yard line during halftime. If the Athletic Director makes it on his 1st try, then the class that won the most cans and the class that won the Husky Challenge will evenly split a $3,500 prize. If he does not make it, he gets one more try. If he makes it on his 2nd try, then each winning class will evenly split $2,000.
  5. Monetary donations can be made in lieu of cans. A $2.00 donation is equal to 1 can of food.
