The Rams, in partnership with the NFL, have reached agreement to provide the Los Angeles Unified School District with a large donation of equipment and apparel for the 67 schools that play football in the district.
The donation will include 10,000 footballs, more than 6,000 shirts, shorts, sandals and cleats and 3,000 jerseys, the Los Angeles Times reported. L.A. Unified plans to have a day after the football season ends during which representatives of the schools will pick up the items.
“It’s good to have them involved,” Trent Cornelius, athletics coordinator for the LAUSD, told The Times in a reference to the Rams. “After 22 years, they’re back and they’re taking an interest and not just selling tickets and trying to win games…. It shows good faith and shows they understand the need of the youth today.”
