Sakrete®, North America's original bagged dry cement mix brand, together with the Carolina Panthers recently presented a check for $5,000 in team member Julius Peppers' name to HomeAid (www.homeaid.org), a leading national nonprofit provider of housing for the homeless and its local chapter in Charlotte.
This is the third year of the Sakrete Sack™ Program, which was created by Sakrete to raise money to help fight homelessness. The program tracks the number of quarterback sacks for each participating team. At the end of the regular season, the player with the most sacks from each team will have $5,000 donated in his name to HomeAid. The overall league sack leader will have an additional $10,000 donated in his name.
Four teams participated this year: The Carolina Panthers, New York Jets, Buffalo Bills, and Atlanta Falcons.
