Parents and the owners of G-Force Athletics, 801 E. 23rd St., began a food drive and hosted a sock-hop dance for students Saturday night to benefit an area food pantry.
About 50 students from seventh grade through high school attended.
They were encouraged to bring at least one food item. For each donation, the students were able to enter a drawing for prizes donated by area businesses.
All items will be given to ECKAN in Lawrence. G-Force Athletics, owned by Jimmy and Hallie Godfrey, will continue to accept donations of food all week.
