    Football coach stands by road with ‘Will Work for Helmets’ sign


    “If someone has a project, we’ll get a group of kids to go do it,” Bilodeau told the Oregonian. “‘Work for helmets’ isn’t just a slogan. We put it into practice."
    The team has already raised enough funds for five new helmets, with a goal of 30 by August. While he had no idea how it would happen just a month ago, Bilodeau now sounds confident that the team can reach its fundraising goal.

    “I’ve got to find a way. Collect cans if I have to. I don’t want a kid not playing football because we don’t have the helmets,” Bilodeau said.

    That happy ending would be enough of a good story to celebrate, but it turns out that Hampton’s offer came with a twist, as well: The hotel chain would give all $7,000 needed for a full team set of new helmets … but only if the team followed through on its promise for community service. Hampton didn’t care where the community service was done, just that the North squad was active in its own community, giving back for the sake of giving back.
