For the second consecutive season, the Buffalo Bills are proudly honoring local organizations for their commitment to bettering our community through the One Buffalo Organization of the Game program. This Bills kicked off the program this year during their Week 2 home opener against the Los Angeles Chargers, selecting the Police Athletic League of Buffalo (PAL) as the season's first award recipient.
The initiative, which began in 2017, empowers Bills players by giving them an opportunity to celebrate those who make a difference. The organizations, which are selected by the players, receive a commemorative game ball, game day recognition and a donation.
This week, on behalf of his teammates, veteran linebacker Lorenzo Alexander presented the game ball to representatives from the PAL at the ADPRO Sports Training Center and thanked them for their contributions. Through collaboration with law enforcement, the organization seeks to improve the quality of life for the youth in Buffalo and surrounding areas through providing educational, recreational, cultural, social and emotional and prevention quality programs.
With input from the players, the Buffalo Bills will continue to celebrate a different local organization at each home game this season.
