WRHS cheerleaders off on scavenger hunt Thursday
Wood River High School's cheerleaders are setting off on a scavenger hunt designed to heal the hunger in the Wood River Valley. On Thursday and Friday, Oct. 6-7 they will be scouring the neighborhoods of Hailey and Bellevue to find food for the Hunger Coalition.
To participate, place non-perishable food items outside your front door for the cheerleaders to pick up throughout the day Thursday and Friday.
Most Hailey neighborhoods will be picked up on Thursday, and the Woodside subdivision and Bellevue will be picked up on Friday.
The girls will be traveling around with shopping carts they have decorated for the occasion hunting for food. The food will be displayed at the home football game against Twin Falls Friday, Oct. 7 and then donated to the Hunger Coalition. If you are outside the hunting area and would like to donate, please email HYPERLINK mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com.
