PHILADELPHIA EAGLES RODNEY MCLEOD JOINS HANDS WITH THE PENNSYLVANIA STATE SENATOR AND MODELL’S SPORTING GOODS TO SHED LIGHT ON THE IMPORTANCE OF MENTORING OUR YOUTH
Boom 103.9 DJ’s & our Boom Street Team will be in attendance with games & prizes as well!
In partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region (BBBS IR), Philadelphia Eagles Safety, Rodney Mcleod, alongside with Pennsylvania Sate Senator, Anthony Williams, are teaming up to bring forth awareness to a significant campaign, the “Mentoring is Brotherhood
Challenge,” with Modell’s Sporting Goods as the official sponsor.
Collectively, Mcleod, Senator Williams, and the leading members of BBBS IR challenge adult males that reside in Philadelphia and surrounding areas to conduct a generous act of service by signing up to be a Big Brother to young adolescents who’ve faced adversity. For every new mentor that signs up, Modell’s Sporting Goods will provide them with a $25 gift card. In homage of National Volunteer Month, the scheduled meet-ups associated with this campaign will take place each and every Saturday in the month of April 2017.
Due to the vast need of volunteers, BBBS IR currently has an extensive list of over 1,200 children waiting to be paired with a mentor, particularly male role models. Each child exhibits potential but not all have equal amounts of resources and opportunities. It’s imperative for Mcleod, Senator Williams, and the BBBS IR organization to engage with the public and highlight this matter through the “Mentoring is Brotherhood Challenge.” Meet-ups will take place every Saturday in the month of April. Those that are interest in signing up can visit the following locations:
Date: Saturday, April 8th
Where: Modell’s Sporting Goods – 1280 Franklin Mills Cir, Philadelphia PA
Date: Saturday, April 15th
Where: Sharon Hill Firehouse – 1531 Hook Rd, Sharon Hill PA
Date: Saturday, April 21st
Where: Fox TV Studios – 330 Market Street, Philadelphia PA

Am I super excited about my new partnership with @senator_anthonyhwilliams as we both are spearheading this campaign for the entire month of April!! With the help of @independencebigs and @modells we look to personally help decrease the number of 1,200 children in the Philadelphia area who are still waiting for Mentors!! I would like to say "Thank You" to @boomphilly @unityinthecommunity and @fitfathers for their participation in helping to lower this unacceptably high number of children who are in need of Male Mentors and Role Models in their lives.
