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 took place at the Life Learning Center in Covington, Kentucky 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 were excited to bring our efforts to the Life Learning Center, located in Covington, Kentucky. We enhanced the existing amenities by adding an outdoor play structure with rubber flooring as part of the child care facility that is offered to those who are enrolled at the LLC. To complete the outdoor area we included shaded picnic tables, benches and planters. We also completed some interior painting to create a closet area that will be filled with donated clothing. LLC participants will have access to this amenity as they begin job interviews, embarking on the new chapter of their lives.
We truly appreciated the sponsorships and dedicated volunteers that brought this project o life! We were extremely fortunate to have received some corporate gifts and grants for the project to bring it to fruition.
