When most people think of Super Bowl week they think of all the festivities leading up to the big game on Super Sunday. What people do not often see is the work in the host community that the NFL and players from both teams are doing.
On Tuesday, players from the Los Angeles Rams and the NFL’s Green Team participated in a day of service in South Los Angeles at A Place Called Home (APCH), a nonprofit community center located in the 2800 block of South Central Avenue.
In addition to building vegetable gardens and installing more than 50 garden walls, players from the Los Angeles Rams and the NFL’s Green Team also created 56 vertical gardens for families in the area who may not be getting enough vegetables and herbs.
The NFL said their goal with projects like this is to make sure that the impact of the Super Bowl lasts beyond one day.
