Hickory Ridge girls’ basketball lends a helping hand

With the help of the Cabarrus County Department of Human Services, members of the Hickory Ridge High varsity and junior varsity girls’ basketball teams recently sponsored two families at Christmas, including Kannapolis residents Marcelline Johnson and her 10-year-old daughter Hudayla Boren.

The team raised the funds to sponsor the families by holding 50-50 drawings at school and donating some of their own money. Players and coaches delivered presents and food to the families on the weekend before Christmas.
