Said Eagles Owner and Eagles Youth Partnership President Christina Lurie: "It's gratifying to be acknowledged for generosity, but our true measure of success is in the impact we make -- in the lives of children, of breast cancer survivors, and in the environment."
On Wednesday, Eagles Youth Partnership also received recognition, for their 15 years of service, with a citation from the School Reform Commission during its monthly public meeting at the School District of Philadelphia.
Eagles Youth Partnership serves more than 50,000 children in need throughout the Philadelphia region each year with programs such as Eagles Eye Mobile, Eagles Book Mobile, and Annual Eagles Playground Build. The Philadelphia Eagles also generate money and awareness for breast cancer research and remain on the cutting edge with their Go Green initiatives that benefit the environment.
