WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — Darrell Waltrip Automotive Group’s Fourth annual Drive Away Hunger Challenge for Williamson County high schools will start this week.
Over 11,000 students will be competing to collect both individual and family size food.
“The food drive our schools do in conjunction with GraceWorks has become a tradition,” said Dr. Charles Farmer, Williamson County School’s Assistant Superintendent of Secondary Schools. “It is a great teachable moment for our students to experience what giving back to our community entails. We are thankful our kids have the opportunity to put service into action.”
The Drive Away Hunger Challenge was started four years ago by the Darrel Waltrip Automotive Group as a fundraising event.
Students have the chance to win cash prizes, bragging rights and trophies that will stay at the winning school until next year.
DWA and GraceWorks will serve as additional drop-off locations along with the WCS nine high school. Encouraged donations include canned fruit, vegetables, soup, tomato products, beef stew and canned meats, jelly, plastic jars of spaghetti sauce and boxed meals.
