Dear Clackamas Youth Football Association Family, 

Welcome to another great season of Cavalier football! We strive to provide a safe, structured, and competitive football experience for your son as well as teach and model sportsmanship, character, and other life-skills that will help your son on and off the field.  

As part of that experience, this year we have adopted a local Clackamas organization and are conducting a food and supply drive to help provide resources for families that live in our community. The Wichita Center is a local not-for-profit that provides food, personal hygiene, and school supplies to members of our community in need. This is a great opportunity to teach and model empathy, community support, and kindness for the boys on our teams. 

On Sunday, October 13th we are asking members of each team to canvas designated neighborhoods to collect supplies to support the mission of the Wichita Center. We do not want the boys to do this without being accompanied by an adult and recommend boys go in pairs/small groups to collect the supplies.  We will provide information about team designated neighborhoods in the coming weeks. Until then, please mark Sunday, October 13th on your calendar for this important activity. 

The team collecting the most supplies will receive a pizza party after a to-be-determined practice. Coaches and 8th grade players will be following up with players from all teams at their respective practices to encourage participation and help connect the supply drive to character and life-skills. 

Below are the highest-demand items that we will be targeting:
