WHAT: As part of the NFL “Pro Bowl Community Blitz” students and school coordinators from dozens of public and private South Florida schools will bring boxes full of donated sports equipment, books and board games to the NFL Youth Education Town at Gwen Cherry Park in Miami. Local school children collected the items for the NFL's Super Kids-Super Sharing sports equipment and book donation project.
Dolphins Wide Receiver Greg Camarillo will greet and thank the children. Participants will help sort donated items which will be passed along to local children in need. The “Pro Bowl Community Blitz” festivities will continue at the Miami Youth Education Town later that day when NFL Pro Bowl players join YET children for a youth football clinic and healthy cooking demonstration.
Students from Miami-Dade Public Schools, the Archdiocese of Miami Schools and several private schools have teamed up with the NFL, Miami Dolphins, South Florida Super Bowl Host Committee, the NFL Youth Education Towns and Boys & Girls Clubs to make a difference in the lives of other children. Their efforts will be enjoyed by thousands of children who might not otherwise have access to sports equipment and books. Donated items will be made available to pre-selected schools and organizations serving children in need in South Florida.
