Redlands High School baseball players are helping a needy family of six, including five children, for the holiday season by donating money and collecting food, their coach said Friday.
"Each player gave $5 of their own money a total of more than $150," Terriers Head Baseball Coach Estevan Valencia said. "We collected four big boxes of food."
The players took boxes of food to Family Services of Redlands on Thursday Nov. 15, Valencia said.
"We have been doing this for eight years now, as long as I have been head baseball coach here at RHS," Valencia said. "It is our opportunity to give back to a community that give us so much. I want the boys to learn this."
