HOLLAND, Mich. - When Holland High School's team takes the field Friday, it will be about more than just football. That's because the team is holding a book drive to benefit kids in their district.
They're asking anyone planning to attend their home game to bring a new or gently used book as a donation at the gate.
And that is not the only service project the team has taken on recently. This summer, they held an event to interact with neighborhood kids by partnering with a local church in Holland.
Principal Katie Pennington also says the team played a crucial role in helping with the redistricting efforts by moving furniture, among other things.
13 ON YOUR SIDE spoke with seniors Donavon Webb and Benjamin Leeka who say they want to give back to the community who supports them.
Coach Andrew Pratley says this year's team is a great group of kids that he's excited to be working with them.
Holland takes on Wyoming on Friday, Aug. 24 at 7 p.m. at Ray and Sue Smith Stadium.
