THE HOME DEPOT NFL NEIGHBORHOOD MVP FACT SHEET
The Home Depot NFL Neighborhood MVP program is a national partnership between The Home Depot and the NFL designed to recognize NFL players who are making a positive impact in their local communities through charitable programs and contributions.
The Home Depot and the NFL share a commitment to giving back to local communities. This program demonstrates that commitment by improving fields and building play spaces in local communities across the country.
The Home Depot NFL Neighborhood MVP program will reward 17 players, one for each week of the regular season, with a football field refurbishment or a playground build in their honor and a donation to the charity of their choice.
The NFL players will work alongside store associates from The Home Depot, representatives from KaBOOM! and other community volunteers at a field refurbishment or playground build project in their local markets.
The Home Depot NFL Neighborhood MVP program will recognize the following players during the 2007 season:
|o1 Brian Dawkins, Philadelphia Eagles||o2 Warrick Dunn, Atlanta Falcons|
|o3 Daryn Colledge, Green Bay Packers||o4 Kevin Mawae, Tennessee Titans|

The Home Depot and the NFL selected the players based on their commitment to giving back to their local communities. These players stand out from their peers through their dedication to community service, commitment in both time and dollars to local charities and an overall desire to improve the lives of people less fortunate than themselves.
At the end of the season, one of the 17 players will be named The Home Depot NFL Neighborhood MVP of the Year and will be honored with a $25,000 donation to the charity of his choice. The MVP will be selected through a national consumer voting contest and by a Blue Ribbon Panel of judges. Fans can log on to www.homedepot.com/NFL and cast their votes for the most deserving player starting Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 22.
The Home Depot is also partnering with United Way to recognize one person who is making a positive impact in their local community as the 2007 Consumer Neighborhood MVP. Consumers can nominate themselves or a neighbor at www.homedepot.com/NFL through Dec. 31, 2007.
The Home Depot became the ‘official home improvement sponsor’ of the National Football League through a multi-year integrated marketing partnership in late 2006. For more information or to learn how to have a playground built in your community, visit www.kaboom.org.
