Big D Superbowl of Service

Not exactly the way the Cowboys envisioned it, but they and the greater Dallas area are hosting the Superbowl this year at Jerryworld. No matter what teams make it to the Big Game, the community is who really wins through the many service projects that happen every year when the ultimate game comes to town.

A sampling:

The Athletes in Action/Bart Starr Award was created to honor the NFL player who best exemplifies outstanding character and leadership in the home, on the field and in the community:

PepsiCo's Taste of The NFL is a Super Bowl party with a purpose! This over-the-top food and wine extravaganza brings together the country’s top chefs as well as current and alumni NFL players to represent each NFL city. Super Bowl XLV will mark the Taste of the NFL’s 20th year raising money and awareness for hunger relief. All net proceeds are contributed to food banks in the surrounding region. Taste’s goal is to raise $1 million in net revenue to be allocated to North Texas food pantries and to food banks in all 32 NFL cities.

16th Annual Rebuilding Together Project enables volunteers to work side-by-side with NFL greats and local community leaders to refurbish and revitalize about 20 homes in desperate need of repair.
