Lions launch new foundation
Detroit- On Friday the Lions have added something more purposeful to the organization that they feel very happy about and that was adding a new foundation.
The Detroit Lions Foundation is more of an advancement of the Detroit Lions Charities. With the new title changed, the purpose is still the same. The Lions want to help the youth with the sport of football in three different methods. Those methods are growing the game, developing the child, and player and coach relationships. Also, the Lions have already donated $5,000,000 to enhance the youth football and cheer program.
"Supporting youth in our community has always been an important part of the fabric of the Lions organization. I am thrilled about our renewed vision and proud of our increased commitment to positively impact the lives of children for years to come,” said Detroit Lions Principal Owner and Chairman Sheila Ford Hamp. “We know that playing sports and being active can positively impact the lives of youth both on and off the field. As a professional sports franchise, we feel a deep sense of responsibility to provide as much access and opportunity to play for as many kids as possible.”
