"Huddle for 100" Volunteer Event

On Thursday, October 10, 2019, the Detroit Lions, in partnership with Kroger, will be hosting their "Huddle for 100" event. During this event volunteers will contribute 100 minutes of their time to give back to the community. The goal is to pack at least 50,000 boxes of food for those in need. Detroit Lions Academy was invited to Ford Field, Tuesday, October 8, 2019 to volunteer and test the assembly line set-up. Thirty-two students and four staff members got to work and pitched in their 100 minutes. With a little instruction, some trial and error, and a surprise appearance from some of the Detroit Lions NFL team, Detroit Lions Academy successfully packed 12,00 boxes of food! At the end of the day this field trip proved to be time well spent as it will positively impact the lives of others.
