Sakrete, NFL team-up to tackle homelessness
This is the third consecutive year for the Sakrete Sack™ Program, created by Sakrete to raise money to help fight homelessness. The program tracks the number of quarterback sacks for each participating team. At the end of the regular season, the player with the most sacks from each team will have $5,000 donated in his name to HomeAid. The overall league sack leader will have an additional $10,000 donated in his name.
Four teams participated this year, including The Carolina Panthers, New York Jets, Buffalo Bills and Atlanta Falcons.
“We are pleased to continue our relationship with these National Football League teams to help tackle homelessness,” said Johnsie Beck, president of Sakrete of North America, LLC. Beck added, “This charitable program allows us to make a positive impact on both the local and national levels because the money goes directly into these teams’ communities.”
