PIQUA — On Friday, Dec. 15, the Piqua High School boys basketball team hosted its annual canned food drive, encouraging those who attended their game against Sidney to donate.

Every person who brought in at least one canned food item received a long-sleeved “Piqua Basketball” t-shirt. Nearly 500 t-shirts were distributed at the game, according to Piqua City Schools Athletic Director Chip Hare.

The next morning, the team delivered several large boxes that contained more than 1,000 canned food items to Greene Street Methodist Church in Piqua.

“While there was a great crowd and energy in the gymnasium at Piqua High School on Friday night, it also demonstrated how much our Piqua community cares for the hungry, especially at this time of the year as we spread the spirit of Christmas,” Hare said.
