2022 Uplifting Gesture

The Eagles’ Big Give

In January, the Eagles and the NFL Foundation donated $100,000 worth of sports bras to Leveling the Playing Field, the team’s nonprofit partner — enough to provide one to every female athlete in need in the Philly school district. The donation coincided with the announcement of the organization’s launch of a brand-new 15-team high-school girls’ flag football league, complete with Nike uniforms and official NFL Flag equipment kits for the 15 participating public and Catholic schools.
