While some delusional fans are spending hard earned money flying banners around the stadium, real fans can do a lot more. Volunteer. The Miami Dolphins “Special Teams” is the organizations volunteer program and they are asking for your help this holiday season. If you will be in Miami over the holidays or live in the Miami area that please take a moment to contact Miami Dolphins Special Teams and be a part of a great team. The Special Teams are designed to help kids especially and no kid should go hungry or without a Christmas. Find out how you can help.
Here is the latest from the Miami Dolphins Special Teams.
November 20, 2013 is Give Miami Day:
Give Miami Day is a unique, 24-hour online giving event that allows individuals in our community an opportunity to build a greater Miami by making a charitable gift to a local nonprofit. All gifts will be processed through GiveMiamiDay.org. The Miami Foundation and its partners have committed an initial monetary pool as incentive dollars to match a percentage of contributions received during Give Miami Day. Here are some charities that we have worked with that you might consider making a donation to: The Nat Moore Foundation, American Red Cross, American Cancer Society, Best Buddies, The Boys & Girls Clubs, Chapman Partnership, and many more! If you would like to donate, please click here http://www.givemiamiday.com/.
Salvation Army 2013 Angel Tree Program
The Salvation Army Angel Tree Program provides new clothing and toys for children from low-income households in South Florida. Angel Tree Donors choose a child or children to sponsor and purchase appropriate gift listed per child. The toys are then delivered to The Salvation Army and later distributed to the child in time for the Christmas Holiday. If you select a child, please drop off your toy to Sun Life Stadium by Wednesday, December 11 and the Special Teams staff will deliver your donation to the Salvation Army on your behalf. The children’s wish list will be posted in the volunteer software later this week.
