Dodge, Bleckley, West Laurens to benefit from Alltel program | Best Of
High school football heroes will not only hit the field this season for a win but also for a good cause, thanks to the second annual Alltel Wireless "Yards 4 Youth Football" program. As part of the program, Alltel Wireless will host special "Alltel Nights" during select high school football games, donating $1 to an area youth football league for every yard of offense gained that game by partner high schools.
The 2012 "Yards 4 Youth Football" program features partnerships with the following high schools:
Bleckley County High School (Cochran, GA)
Dodge County High School (Eastman, GA)
West Laurens High School (Dexter, GA)
Alltel Wireless has broadened the reach of the 'Yards 4 Youth Football' program this season by hosting three "Alltel Nights" at each participating high school in an effort to help support the future stars of local high school football. Alltel recognizes the need to maintain and protect the legacy of youth football for future generations and look forward to bringing the 'Yards 4 Youth Football' program to local communities.
Alltel Wireless will donate $1 for each yard of offense gained by the partner high schools during the first two "Alltel Nights." Alltel will present the youth football organization with a monetary donation for the total amount of yards gained during halftime of the final "Alltel Night."
In addition, supporters of the Yards 4 Youth program can show their school spirit by "fist bumping" their favorite high school. The school showing the most spirit, as determined by the number of votes (fist bumps) by October 19th will be awarded $1,000.00 by Alltel.
Last year, Alltel Wireless donated more than $10,000 to benefit local youth football programs as part of the "Yards 4 Youth Football" program.
