This region was devastated by Hurricane Katrina and is in need of much assistance. This great nation’s future depends on the development and contributions of our youth, and sports are often a great mechanism for learning life’s most valuable lessons. We are proud to be able to help so many young people in an area that needs so much help.”
The financial contribution will be utilized in multiple ways. In addition to providing uniforms for every player and footballs for every team, efforts will also focus on recruiting and utilizing volunteers with expertise in all areas surrounding youth football.
