Beginning this Sunday against the Cowboys, The Ertz Family Foundation and The Athletes’ Corner will once again team up to help feed families in need – launching their new initiative, ‘Holiday Touchdowns for Meals’
Today, The Ertz Family Foundation announced the launch of a new campaign aimed to fight hunger called ‘Holiday Touchdowns for Meals’. This initiative will be launched in partnership with The Athletes’ Corner and will aim to provide thousands of meals to families in Philadelphia during the holiday season.
During the Eagles home games throughout the months of November and December, The Ertz Family Foundation will provide 2,500 meals to local food banks in Philadelphia – for EVERY EAGLES TOUCHDOWN. For example, if the Eagles score 4 touchdowns on Sunday vs. the Cowboys – The Ertz Family Foundation will help provide 10,000 meals to Philly families! When Zach, (who is currently on IR) returns to the lineup – they will donate 5,000 meals for each touchdown that Zach scores.
The Philadelphia Eagles have 3 home games during November and December. The Ertz Family Foundation hopes to provide over 25,000 meals to local Philly food banks during the three-game span.
“This holiday season we are joining forces with The Athletes’ Corner with one goal in mind, to help feed our city. It has always been an amazing feeling to help our city and to be able to provide thousands of meals to our community takes it to another level. With this holiday program, we look forward to celebrating touchdowns together with Philadelphia. – Zach and Julie Ertz, Co-Founders of The Ertz Family Foundation
With the launch of this new initiative, The Ertz Family Foundation continues its efforts to help fight hunger especially during this time where there are so many families in such dire need. Earlier this year, The Ertz Family Foundation donated $100,000 to Philabundance – which is a local Philadelphia-area food bank working with the city to supply emergency food for those in need.
With the increasing number of families experiencing food insecurity, Zach and Julie Ertz will continue to help as much as possible. To help Zach and Julie in their efforts, please visit: https://www.ertzfamilyfoundation.org/donate/
