Rochester Crusaders team up with FOODLINK to fight hunger

The Rochester Crusaders will be running a food drive February 14 from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. and February 15 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Crusaders volunteers will be available to help fight hunger during the above times at McQuaid High School, located at 1800 South Clinton Avenue in Rochester.
