ST. MARYS — While they may be Riders, Cardinals or Bulldogs by day, students at Tri Star united as humanitarians against hunger in collecting for a local food drive that donated almost 6,000 items this week.
Teacher Rob Menker said the annual holiday tradition has continued for at least 16 years; the total amount over all the years topped 40,000 after the students’ most recent haul.
Students have collected money this school year, organizing fundraisers like hot dog and donut sales to raise money.

Twenty-five years later, the 2014 edition is now just two wins away from another state championship. And they’ve made it look easy the last two weeks.
