Erskine Academy will compete in WGME 13/Fox 23’s School Spirit Challenge to benefit Good Shepherd Food Bank.

The challenge is a friendly competition among high schools to show school pride and spirit while helping communities address hunger in Maine through a month-long food and fund drive. Although initiated by the students and faculty of Erskine Academy, the hope is this will be a larger community cause and effort.

Community members are asked to join Erskine’s effort by bringing a contribution of any size — financial donations or food — to the school between Sept. 2 and Oct. 28.

To kick off this event, WGME 13/Fox 23 will broadcast live from the Erskine Academy gymnasium from 6 to 8 a.m. Friday, Sept. 9.

For more information, call the school at 445-2962.
