FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The South Side Football program has started a GoFundMe page to help with purchasing new equipment.
They are asking for donations to assist with purchasing new training and practice equipment, lowering the costs of player practice packs, a new mobile water station and supplies for Pre and Post game player meals.
The page adds, “With approximately 70% of the students receiving free and reduced lunches, fundraising by selling discount cards or other items by our families is a difficult situation. Having the opportunity to be a part of the team is one of the greatest experiences students will have during their High School career and having up to date equipment plays a huge part of making that experience safe and memorable.”
The page updated two days after WANE 15’s story aired saying they’ve reached 25% of their goal.

On Saturday, June 29th the team held a fundraiser at the Bluffton Road Burger King, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
