Frisco ISD baseball and softball teams combined to collect a record 32,734 items during the Keeper of the Game Foundation and Pastime Training Center's Strike Our Hunger Food Drive this fall.
The items, including both food and household products, benefit the Frisco Family Services Food Pantry. The Liberty and Reedy baseball teams led the way, with Liberty collecting a record 8,927 items in the ninth year of the annual food drive

“Our competitive spirit enjoys the win, but it really is an honor to support our Frisco community,” Liberty baseball coach Scott McGarrh said. “There could be no definition of a successful life that does not include service to others.
I am thankful that this event gets bigger and better every year.”
“I am extremely proud of the Frisco ISD baseball teams for giving back to their community,” added Keeper of The Game Executive Director Bryan Hoctor. “We had all 12 schools participate. It was a record-breaking food drive and many
teams set individual drop off records.”
The total amount of items collected has increased each of the nine years since the food drive began.
