Charles Henderson High School and a grocery supplier are teaming up to get groceries to people in Pike County.

In a way to eliminate the need to visit crowded grocery stores, people can order their groceries through Charles Henderson High School in a fundraiser for the athletic department.

“We’ve been brainstorming, trying to figure out a fundraiser that we can do,” CHHS Athletic Director and head football coach Brad McCoy said. “We thought, ‘what if we had groceries delivered to the school so families could come and pick up their items.’ It could be an item that maybe grocery stores didn’t have. People also wouldn’t have to battle a bunch of people.”

Mrs. (Lise) Faison would be organizing the way the funds will be distributed according to which sport is being represented.”

Items that are available to be purchased include: toilet paper, paper towels, facemasks, surface sanitizer spray, all purpose orange cleaner and much more. There is also plenty food options including hot dogs, hamburger patties, spaghetti, Salisbury steak and macaroni and cheese.
