On Sept 23, the Baltimore Ravens hosted their “Huddle for 100” community day of service in recognition of the NFL’s 100th season. The goal is to inspire NFL fans around the country to contribute 100 minutes of volunteer service each and accumulate 100 million minutes of volunteer service in total.
Each non-profit participating was supported by the Ravens, including the team’s executives, coaching staff and almost every player during the community-wide initiative. As a bonus to the volunteers, each non-profit site will be given two tickets to the Baltimore Ravens vs. Cincinnati Bengals game for Oct. 13, 2019. The tickets will be given to volunteers who have gone above and beyond their call of duty for their service. Alongside the game tickets, two deserving volunteers will receive ticket pages for Super Bowl LIV on Feb. 2, 2020 in Miami Gardens, Fla.
A few notable non-profit locations for key events included:
The Warehouse Collaborative where Ravens President Dick Cass, Cornerback Marlon Humphrey, Outside Linebacker Matthew Judon, Defensive Back Anthony Levine Sr. and Kicker Justin Tucker were in attendance.
Webster Kendrick Boys & Girls Club where Quarterback Lamar Jackson and Wide receiver Willie Snead IV were in attendance.
Norwood Elementary School where Cornerback Brandon Carr was in attendance.
Our Daily Bread where Guard Marshal Yanda was in attendance.
Maryland Center for Veterans was the location where the Super Bowl LIV ticket giveaway was held, along with Defensive Tackle Brandon Williams and Defensive End Chris Wormley were in attendance.
Fans were also able to use #RavensHuddleFor100 on social media to highlight and document their volunteerism, it also helped the team collect and track total minutes being accrued for volunteers. Overall, 25,000 volunteers represent a combined 3 million-plus minutes of volunteer service throughout the Baltimore community.
