White Sox Food Drive

On Saturday, September 19, the Chicago White Sox will host our Annual White Sox Wives Food Drive. White Sox players’ wives and Greater Chicago Food Depository volunteers will be at the U.S. Cellular Field gates to collect non-perishable food donations and monetary gifts from fans.

In an effort to make this year’s drive the best ever, the White Sox are asking fans to conduct a local food drive before September 19. Reach out to your neighbors, teammates, classrooms, etc., and ask others to donate non-perishable food items. Then bring your collection to the game on September 19. All who donate (monetary donations also are welcome) will receive a raffle ticket for the chance to win autographed memorabilia from current White Sox team members.

If you cannot attend the game, food donations may be dropped off at U.S. Cellular Field beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, September 14 through noon on Saturday, September 19. Donations should be dropped at Gate 4 (located on the northwest corner of the ballpark).

Volunteer Corps

Almost 500 White Sox Volunteer Corps members are going to meet at 8:15 a.m. tomorrow at Lot C of the ballpark and then head over to Wendell Phillips High School (39th and Prairie), where we will help renovate parts of the high school and the elementary school located inside (that’s how big the school is).

White Sox staff and players are scheduled to stop by at lunchtime to thank the volunteers and maybe lend a little help with the work.

Among the scheduled projects is rehabbing the school’s baseball field, painting and working on a very special mural.  I’m excited to take part.  Every time I’ve worked on a Volunteer Corps project, be it Boys & Girls Clubs, Food Depository, etc., I’ve walked away with such a sense of pride in the White Sox, in a day well spent and how being a Sox fan connects so many different people.

It’s something not to be missed.  I hope I see you there tomorrow.

The Volunteer Corps is doing great things. Just wish there were more opportunities on the weekends for some of the White Sox fans who work all week (and there are a lot of us). Looking forward to another visit to the Cell (my third in a row) to see Freddy and hopefully get a split of this short series.

GO SOX! (hi tc!)

Another article from Scott. They’re coming so fast now we hardly have time to keep up….. But, please keep them coming Scott. always informative, thank you.

Go Sox and Freddie….. ’09..

I’ll go back to my hidie-hole now…. j.k.

Hey all. Got here last inning, but will remain silent unless necessary.

Alright, enough is enough already….. Win this game…….. Go Sox’09..j.k.

Hooray for AJ – GO SOX!!!

JK and Vicki, I’ve been watching while I pack for my trip tomorrow. I’ll be out of pocket till Tuesday – hold the fort while I’m gone, please!

Thanks,
Peggy

I’m with you. Our bullpen is tired enough as it is from yesterday.

That was so weird I had to comment yet again. Now is the time Gentlemen……. Go Sox’09..j.k.

Hi Vickey, You and me Kid…..

Yahoooooo!!!! Way to go AJ…… Sox’09 win….. Sox’09 win….. Way to go Team…… and Thank you very much……j.k.

YES!!! Thank you AJ and Alexei!!! Nice job tonight guys! Let’s go White Sox…

Well, the only thing that wasn’t ugly (on both sides) of that game was the final score!!! But, I’ll take it. There was enough bad baserunning to fill dozens of blooper reels.

But AJ came through both defensively and offensively and we live to breathe another day.

I wish I could have seen the game last night. I bet it was thrilling. Atta boy AJ.

A 4-2 homestand against the Red Sox and A’s, not too bad. We still have some ground to make up, but the Royals are doing their best for us.

I’m just popping in to say hello to my fellow blogging buddies and to wish David a speedy recovery. That was a very touching story and I am grateful to have read it.

My absence, however, will go on a bit further as I have had to work late at work this week to meet some deadlines, but I have been keeping up with our guys with the morning highlights. Let’s take this off day to recharge and beat the Halos tomorrow. Go White Sox!
