Money directly benefits Deer Park School District

 

What:
The Cincinnati Bengals and the NFL Foundation teamed up to contribute $200,000 to the Deer Park Community City Schools athletic department, topping off a fundraising effort that now has raised over $700,000.

The grant will help to install artificial stadium turf, new goal posts and asphalt in necessary areas at the Deer Park Junior/Senior High School field.

This will allow for additional use of the field for more football games and practices, additional sports, band competitions and renting the fields.
