Lassiter High School and the newly created Lutzie 43 Foundation (www.Lutzie43.org) are joining forces for the inaugural “13 Can Make A Difference” food drive to be held on Friday, September 12 during the Lassiter and Woodstock varsity football game.
The Lutzie 43 Foundation and Lassiter High School are asking students and members of the community to donate 13 non-perishable food items or home products such as soap, detergent, personal care products, cooking oil, etc. Monetary donations will be accepted throughout the school day at both Lassiter and Woodstock as well as at Frank Fillmann Stadium during the game.
The first 1,000 food drive contributors will receive a commemorative ”Lutz” bracelet from the foundation, and all students will be eligible for one of four community service scholarships for $430 from the Lutzie 43 Foundation to be announced approximately one week after the game. T-shirts for the event also will be for sale for ten dollars throughout the week at Lassiter.
The food drive will benefit the St. Vincent De Paul food pantry, which provides food and other home products on a non-denominational basis to those in need in the community. Several Lassiter organizations including, the cheerleading team, student council, and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) are working together to coordinate the event. In addition, Woodstock High School will also be participating in the food drive.
The “13 Can Make A Difference” food drive will serve as one of the initial events offered by the Lutzie 43 Foundation, whose mission aims to develop the character of young athletes and their coaches focusing on leadership, charity, compassion, mentorship, hard work, honesty, and faith. The Lutzie 43 Foundation was created in honor of Lassiter and Auburn University Alum, Phillip Lutzenkirchen, who died in a car accident this past June.
