USJ-TCA Food Drive

RIFA Can Drive Team

Story & Photography by Woody Woodard

Instead of the annual football rivalry that occurs between USJ and TCA on the football field, the two schools came together to perform a charity that benefits people in the area supported by RIFA. In the past the two schools have coordinated this charity project and collected 260,852 pounds of food. RIFA gave out 390,000 meals through Soup Kitchen, Snack Backpack, Food Bank and Senior Staples.

In 2017 the combined total raised by both schools is 62,419 pounds of food for RIFA. Thanks to the students, staff, parents and students for the amazing effort they accomplished as a team.
