Letter: Knights wrestlers to host donation collection at Elburn, SG Jewel locations

Kaneland High School wrestlers last year earned their way to camp by giving back to the community. They not only met their goal of donating 200 volunteer hours to the community but blew past it to achieve 293 hours. Through donations to their cause, the wrestlers attended Malecek Wrestling Camp in Wisconsin Dells free of charge.

Our boys are back at it again this year. They have raised the ante and changed their goal to 400 volunteer hours given to the community. They are achieving this through helping senior citizens with their yard, as well as volunteer time at Conley’s and Northern Illinois Food Bank and have already reached 293 hours.

They leave for the same camp in a few weeks with a goal of free of charge again. They are going to be doing a donation collection to help pave the way for them on Saturday, June 8, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at both Sugar Grove and Elburn Jewel locations.

It is getting to be crunch time for them and they work so hard within in the community, so it would be great to see them meet all their goals. These boys work every Wednesday and Saturday somewhere doing something simply to help someone.
