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. 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 Hometown Huddle where NFL players and staff come together to improve and expand school facilities while engaging students in physical activities.
The 25th Annual Gridiron Gala celebrates the impact of the partnership among United Way of New York City, New York Giants and New York Jets. Join us for an exciting evening of football and philanthropy as we mingle with the Hometown Gridiron Greats of yesterday and today.
