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 partner 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 celebrated the impact of the partnership with an exciting evening of football, philanthropy and mingling with the Hometown Gridiron Greats of yesterday and today. For more information, visit
