Malcolm & Parsons Food Pantry Drive
Drop off any canned goods or non-perishable items at Malcolm & Parsons Insurance Agency's downtown Stoughton office (770 Washington St.) during the months of July and August and Malcolm & Parsons will match the donation.
All proceeds and donations will be distributed to the two local food pantries in Stoughton.
"These are the months when the food pantries are in need the most," Jack Raeke of Malcolm & Parsons wrote in an email. "We have a kiddie Pool set up in our office and hope to fill it with can goods and non perishables. As we did last year Malcolm and Parsons has agreed to match the value of all the donations! THE POOL HAS A LOT MORE ROOM."***
Fall Sports Underway at Stoughton High School
The Stoughton High football team began official team practices Monday, August 19, with the rest of the SHS fall sports teams taking the field for preseason practices starting Thursday, August 22. The regular season starts in September after the start of the school year.
Stoughton High Athletic Director Ryan Donahue said SHS athletes have been utilizing the school's recently updated weight room all summer, with an average of 60-70 students each day working out and conditioning at SHS thanks to the BFS Program (Bigger, Faster, Stronger), which was sponsored by the Prone Family Foundation.
Donahue also added that it's not too late to sign up for the fall sports season.
