This is a fun charity basketball game played between two teams of faculty and staff (any Schodack staff member, teacher, administrator, assistant/aide, clerical, BOE, coach, custodian, ETC). You do not need to be a basketball player or have any skill to play. The teams are coached by our own senior student varsity basketball players AND refereed by our junior basketball students.
All proceeds raised from the event (admission, concession, halftime prizes/games) go to our local food bank, the Anchor. This event is one of their largest annual donations in terms of cash and canned/non-perishable food items for them.
This year the Schodack community came together to raise $3,870.54 for the Anchor in Castleton at our ‘Hoops against Hunger’ event. Additionally, approximately 20+ boxes of canned goods and non-perishable food items were gathered.
“We’ve been doing the event since 2008. Since then, we’ve raised close to $40,000 and thousands of food items for our local food pantry, the Anchor, in Castleton.
