Robert E. Lee And John Tyler High School Pantry Raid Competition

   Two East Texas schools are using a friendly cross-town rivalry to help the less fortunate.  Every year, John Tyler and Robert E. Lee High Schools participate in a pantry raid competition.  The raid is to help replenish the food inventory at the East Texas Food Bank.  Each school tries to collect as many cans as possible.

   Chasidy Griffie, Senior at John Tyler High School says, "We are collecting food for the pantry raid is to help the food bank of East Texas, and I think it's a good opportunity for the student body to get together do something nice for the community."  Rachel Morse, Senior at Robert E. Lee High School says, "Whoever wins it doesn't matter as long as we can raise a good amount of pounds of cans that's what going to make everyone happy."

   The winning school will be announced at tonight's football game, between Robert E. Lee and John Tyler.  Workers at the East Texas Food Bank estimate donations from both schools to top 50,000 pounds of food, just in time for the holiday season.
