Mehlville, Oakville high schools wage underwear wars
Charity event linked to annual football game
October 10, 2012 - The annual showdown between the Mehlville and Oakville high school football teams Oct. 5 was not the only contest waged between the two district schools.
Students took part in the annual "Underwear Wars" competition that helps area families in need.
For the past month, donation boxes have been set up at Mehlville and Oakville, with students dropping off new underwear for adults and children and even diapers for babies. All the donated items are being given to St. Patrick Center, which helps struggling families rebuild their lives.
At the halftime of the Oakville-Mehlville football game, students from each school lined up in a show of friendship and the winner was announced. Oakville High School students collected 19,000 items to win the Underwear Wars trophy. Mehlville students collected an impressive 12,000 items.
A representative from St. Patrick Center was at the game and said she was "overwhelmed" by the generosity and compassion shown by students at both schools.
