NEWBERRY – Newberry's football team is collecting donations throughout the week and at Setzler Field for Saturday's Homecoming battle with Limestone to benefit a former employee of the school's dining hall.


Medical issues have precluded Krystal Lopez, a beloved member of the Sodexo staff, from returning to work this semester. The football coaching staff created a "Change for Change" initiative to encourage members of the Newberry Family to donate spare change or cash to help defray Krystal's medical costs.


Donation buckets will be available at tonight's Pigskin Preview Live, a broadcast of the South Carolina Radio Network's popular SportsTalk program from 6:00-8:00 p.m., at Bar Figaro at the corner of Main and Nance streets downtown. Donations may also be made at the football offices or OL Casey Building on campus Thursday and Friday. Donations will be collected at the gates and in the stands during Saturday's football game against Limestone.
