During July homestand games, baseball fans are encouraged to bring healthy, nonperishable food items to Blue Wahoos Stadium. Whataburger is rewarding those who donate with coupons for a free Whataburger!

Food collection boxes are located at the gates of the stadium, as well as at the Blue Wahoos office, located at 351 West Cedar Street, Pensacola. All donations will benefit children, senior citizens, veterans, families, and individuals served by Manna in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.

Remaining Wahoos homestands are July 12-17 and July 26-31. Game and ticket information can be found at: https://www.milb.com/pensacola.
