The City of Barberton is partnering with Alcoa Barberton to host their first charity flag football game at 10 a.m. on Dec. 16 at Barberton High Football and Soccer Stadium(s).
The game, which was originally slated for Saturday, has been rescheduled for Dec. 16 due to unforeseen circumstances, according to a city official.
Employees of the city, including council members and the mayor, will play against Alcoa employees. Players will each donate one new, unwrapped toy. There will be a 50/50 drawing and raffle for prizes. Tickets are $2 for adults and $1 for children, which can be purchased at the game.
All of the money and toys collected will be donated to the Barberton Salvation Army.
“We previously participated with Alcoa to raise money in basketball and softball,” Mayor Bill Judge said. “They do one service project every month.”
