Friends of Hammond backs athletes


HAMMOND - The Friends of Hammond Athletics organization has begun its annual fund-raising drive to help in assisting the boys and girls at Hammond Central School.

The continued generosity of Hammond supporters makes it possible for every student athlete at HCS to receive a sharp looking travel bag from the “Friends”. Last year 24 bags were presented to new players and cheerleaders in grades 7-12.“These red and white bags embroidered with each player’s name are a tremendous source of pride for all of our boys’ and girls’ teams,” says Chet Truskowski of the Friends of Hammond Athletics.

“The Friends” is a unique organization that has raised thousands of dollars in support of Red Devil teams.

The idea behind the “Friends” organization members is to make a one-time yearly donation and then sit back and enjoy the results.

Last year “The Friends” sponsored a dinner for the boys’ and girls’ soccer teams, both of which have made tremendous strides this season.

In addition to the travel bags and sports’ dinners, “The Friends” has helped the boys’ basketball team purchase practice jerseys, the girls’ softball team to travel to the Mudville tournament and Cooperstown and the girls’ basketball team go to summer camp.

Donation checks should be make out to “Friends of HCS Athletics” and sent to Citizens National Bank. PO Box 187, Hammond, NY 13646 or given to Hammond Coach-Athletic Director Shawn Dack or Truskowski.
