Recently, BH-BL High School senior Joe Nuzzi was on WGNA's airwaves talking about the school's participation in the Hunger Games Contest. Ten local schools are competing against each other to collect non-perishable food items to be donated to local families in need. BH-BL High School students have participated in local food drives for the past 15 years, but tying it to a contest gives the students a new goal. If you'd like to help BH-BL High School students win the contest and give back to the community, bring non-perishable food donations to the school, 88 Lakehill Road, Burnt Hills. Students have until Nov. 2 to collect as many items as possible. Take a listen to Joe's interview on our Facebook page. [CLIP ON FACEBOOK]
