For more than 40 years, United Way and the National Football League have worked together to improve the lives of young people across the country. In New York City, United Way of New York City (UWNYC), the New York Giants, and the New York Jets have partnered to impact children and families living in some our City’s most-challenged neighborhoods. We do this through comprehensive solutions including UWNYC’s ReadNYC initiative to improve grade-level reading by third grade and the Hometown Huddle where NFL players and staff come together to improve and expand school facilities while engaging students in physical activities.
In 2017, the Gridiron Gala celebrated 24 years of partnership among United Way of New York City, the New York Giants and New York Jets, and its impact on the community.
