WHO:  Buffalo Bills Players

As a team, we have decided to engage our community in two ways,” said Bills LB Lorenzo Alexander. “First, on Tuesday, October 17, we plan to go out into the community as an organization and serve Buffalo’s young people through five different community relations events. Our hope is that this is not just a feel-good moment, but from these events, relationships are birthed and are continued into the future and become sustainable for the men who come behind us. Secondly, we plan to meet with local public and political officials about how as players, we can help change and improve legislation and institutional culture.” 

The Buffalo Bills will be kicking off a new initiative, “One Buffalo Organization of the Game,” this Sunday when the team hosts Tampa Bay. With input from the Bills players, the Buffalo Bills will honor a local organization at each home game this season. One Buffalo Organization of the Game will celebrate the selected organization’s commitment to making a positive impact in the Western New York Community. In addition to receiving game day recognition, the organization will also receive a donation.
