Sherri Austin, Tyson Manager of In-Kind Donations, with Miami Dolphin players
Lift Up America, the Miami Dolphins and Tyson Foods, Inc. are making the holidays a little brighter for people in need in. Dolphins players helped unload a truck containing more than 35,000 pounds of protein products to be distributed to area hunger relief agencies at an event at Dolphin Stadium
“Our partnership and team spirit between these great organizations has a tremendous impact,” said Dave Hannah, CEO of Lift Up America. “It is truly inspirational to see so many entities coming together with such a noble goal in mind.”
About 15 current and former Dolphins players helped distribute high-quality protein to approximately 30 hunger relief agencies served by The Daily Bread Food Bank in South Florida. In addition to the protein, the Huizenga Family Foundation is donating $25,000 which is being matched by Publix for a total of $50,000. The funds will be distributed among the agencies in the form of gift cards which the agencies can use at Publix stores to purchase additional food.
