North Platte Community College softball players Morganne Brown, of Milliken, Colo., and Jordan Young, of Johnstown, Colo., load a pickup bed with donated cases of water. The team has been collecting water, Gatorade, Powerade, granola bars and fruit snacks for the fire departments battling wildfires in Colorado.
So far, 170 cases of water have been received. The team is hoping to have 300 cases to deliver next weekend. Those interested in helping with the drive can contact any softball player, or Higgins at (515) 419-5801 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
