During the upcoming Panthers game against the Denver Broncos, Sakrete® together with the Carolina Panthers will present a check for $5,000 in Julius Pepper’s name to HomeAid (www.homeaid.org), a leading national non-profit provider of housing for the homeless and its local chapter in Charlotte, NC. The presentation will be made during the pre-game activities. Kickoff is scheduled for 4:15 p.m., EST.
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.”
