Animal lovers can support a worthy cause while watching a good football game this week.

Students in the West Forsyth High School DECA marketing club will hold a food drive for the Humane Society of Forsyth County during their match-up with Lambert High School on Friday.

The game starts at 7:30 p.m. at West, but DECA students will be at the stadium beginning at 6 p.m. to collect items such as dry and canned dog and cat food, kitty litter and cleaning supplies for the local Humane Society.

Kathy Kemp, the club’s advisor, said its two vice presidents of civic consciousness, Mackenzie Zigler and Hanna Crowe, decided to support the Humane Society this year.

She said already the girls and other club members have surpassed an initial goal of $1,000 in monetary support for the organization through several different fundraisers at the school.

“I think now we’ll just set our goal up to $2,000,” Kemp said, noting that monetary donations will also be accepted at Friday’s game.

Additionally, anyone interested in supporting the cause can drop off donations to the school any time throughout this academic year.

“We’ll have an ongoing food and supply drive for the Humane Society,” Kemp said. “Anyone who wants to give can just bring items to the front office and tell them they’re for the DECA drive.”

As for Friday, Kemp said she’s hoping for a strong showing.

“Some of the representatives from the Humane Society will be there with their van and we want fill that van to the brim for them,” she said.
