Houston Schools Enlisted for Super Effort
Super Kids-Super Sharing Program Helps Houston Children
Local public and private schools can sign up now to participate in a Super Bowl community service project that puts books, sports equipment, school supplies and games into the hands of Houston area children in need.
The National Football League is teaming up with local schools and with the Houston Super Bowl Host Committee, the Houston Texans, the Houston Texans YMCA and Verizon for this year’s Super Kids-Super Sharing project. Participating schools sign up now, then collect gently used or new books, sports equipment, school supplies and games in early January. As part of Super Kids-Super Sharing, used cell phones will be collected for the HopeLine® from Verizon program which collects used wireless phones and accessories and turns them into support for domestic violence organizations. The NFL provides posters, instructions and other materials that make the Super Kids project easy to implement.
On Thursday, January 19, 2017 coordinators and several students from each registered, participating school will bring donated items to a Super Kids collection event. Students will help sort donations, then enjoy football-themed play activities provided by the Texans. Donated books, sports equipment, school supplies and games will be distributed to local schools and organizations that work with under-served children in the community.
Individual schools may register to participate by emailing the name of their school, address and contact information to Susan.Groh@NFLenvironment.com. Interested schools should register at their earliest opportunity
