Hometown Huddle

An NFL and United Way initiative administered by the Marvin Lewis Community Fund to create a lasting change in the community.

The 2017 Hometown Huddle project will take place at the Life Learning Center in Covington, KY on Tuesday, October 17th!

A Tradition of Community Outreach
The Hometown Huddle is an NFL/United Way initiative that happens in each NFL market on the same day and is meant to promote volunteerism and create a lasting impression in the community. The Fund administers this event each year on behalf of the Bengals and is proud to continue this tradition of community outreach. We coordinate all aspects of the project from concept to execution on build day, coordinating hundreds of volunteers and also procuring in-kind and cash donations to fund the entire project.

In 2017 we are excited to bring our efforts to the Life Learning Center, located in Covington, Kentucky. We plan to enhance the existing amenities by adding an outdoor play structure and indoor rock wall as part of the child care facility that is offered to those who are enrolled at the Life Learning Center. To complete the outdoor area we hope to include shaded picnic tables and rubber surface flooring.

While we feel this will lend a great deal of support to those who are on the path to secure and sustain a better way of living, we will also add a community garden to promote a healthier and happier lifestyle through growing and sharing fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs. Lastly, we will be visually enhancing the site with landscaping.

It will take several sponsorships and many volunteers to make this project come to life! We are very fortunate to have some commitments through local companies and grants but monetary sponsorship is still needed for us to be able to provide these areas for the Life Learning Center.
