Last year the PTAA raised over 300,000 cans for 2nd Harvest Food Bank. They usually raise/bring in about 8-15,000 cans at each particular Triad baseball game(Greensboro Grasshoppers/Winston-Salem Dash).

Last Friday the PTAA(Piedmont Triad Apartment Association) raised/collected over 10,000 cans at the WS Dash game.

Cans or cash are accepted. $5 will buy 60 cans of food with 2nd Harvest’s

a Hoppers prize on Friday night!
