Business, community working together

The football parents provide team dinner for the players and coaches every week on the evening before game day. In the week before the first playoff game, a group of football moms were contacting local businesses asking for donations for that week. Anne West, mother of Varsity player Ethan West, contacted Tom Goldsmith, franchise owner of Culver’s,  because her son and other football players work there. Anne said Tom responded back immediately with what they could donate, and it was way more than she expected. It included 300 chicken tenders, 15 pounds of pot roast, 90 buns, 80 concrete mixers, and ranch and barbecue cups.

“He was very generous with his donation as he’s only been in the community for a little over 3 months and we were asking to provide for 70 players and coaches,” remarked Anne. “When we arrived on Thursday, he had one of his crew leaders, Owen, meet us in the back and brought out a large warming cart with all the hot and cold food items. He even loaded up the vehicle with all the food so we were in and out of there within 10 minutes.” 

Because the team wanted to show their appreciation, they had all the varsity players sign a autographable photo matte which included a picture of the team and coaches after beating Forest Hills Northern and clinching the OK White Conference Championship. They also provided some other items and took a picture with a couple of his crew members underneath the Culver’s sign after the meal.

“This is such a great example of how great our small town community is in supporting our football team,” said Anne.
