EAST HANOVER — New York Jets players unveiled a remodeled, state-of-the-art weight room at Hanover Park High School as part of the 21st annual Hometown Huddle day of service. The players are working with 25 student-athletes to put the finishing touches on the weight room.
The project also serves as the kickoff for the United Way Varsity Letter program at Hanover Park High School where students will receive a varsity letter for completing 120 hours of community service in conjunction with the Jets Huddle for 100 initiative.
As part of the celebration of the NFL’s 100th season, Huddle for 100 looks to inspire 1 million people to volunteer 100 minutes of their time to make meaningful contributions to their communities — with the goal being 100 million minutes volunteered by Super Bowl LIV.
The New York Jets take great pride in a long-standing, year-round commitment to our community. Programs funded by the New York Jets Foundation look to positively influence the lives of young men and women in the tri-state area by promoting fitness, supporting youth football and preventing bullying, particularly in disadvantaged communities.
From launching football teams at urban high schools to urging students to be active for at least 60 minutes every day to fostering positive school environments, the New York Jets invest in programs that make a difference in the lives of others. In addition to our focus on youth development, the Jets support the efforts of the Lupus Research Alliance and numerous established charitable organizations and causes sponsored by the NFL.
