The echoes of the cheering and the fun at the “Battle for the Holy Grail” rivalry game that was played on January 17th will have a long-lasting impact on local people who suffer from hunger. Northwest Christian fans raised $300 to be donated to Generation Alive’s “Something to Eat” Campaign.” Northwest Christian students will continue to raise money towards a goal of $2,500 to purchase the food the students will assemble into meal packets in the spring.
San Francisco Giants Relief Pitcher Jeremy Affeldt, who graduated from Northwest Christian, kick-started the funding for the Crusaders. In total, the group hopes to pack 10,000 meals.
Generation Alive’s “Something to Eat” Campaign is a crisis response, meal packaging program. The meals consist of rice, soy, dried veggies, and vitamin powder. Each bag will feed six people, is easy to cook (just add boiling water), and is designed to provide all the necessary nutrition for adolescent development.
Northwest Christian was very pleased to bring home the trophy this year as the winner of the Holy Grail Spirit Competition.
