On Saturday - September 16th, 2017 some (14) NFLPA Chicago members along with our beloved partners at Home Depot converged on the city of Aurora for yet another RPFPC Youth Football Grant Unveiling Ceremony honoring another of our winners - the East Aurora Youth Tackle Football League! Beyond our $1,500 dollar football equipment grant, Home Depot provided $4,000 in merchandise to aid in the betterment of their program and facilities! In addition to the merchandise, Home Depot also provided professional artists to repaint the enormous storage containers that house all of their on-field equipment with some beautiful logos representing their league and the R.P.F.P.C.! It was certainly a day worth remembering where many hearts were touched and the community came together to support their league. The gathering was also attended by members of the local Aurora Police Department as they brought over a couple of their mobile command units to heighten the excitement! It was a wonderful ceremony, and we couldn't have been more proud to play a part in making a real difference in the lives of these youth players, their families and fans! Please enjoy these pictures that tell this story better than any words!
