The New York Jets have created a partnership with Sakrete®, North America's original bagged cement mix brand, to raise money for the homeless through its "Sakrete Sack"™ program.
The New York Jets have anted with Sakrete, as its Defensive Line and Sakrete will each donate $250 per sack for a total of $500 to the New York Jets Foundation. Last year, the Jets had a total of 41 sacks, and this year they look to eclipse this mark for the Sakrete Sack™ program!
At the end of the regular season, the player with the most sacks from the Jets will have $5,000 donated in his name to HomeAid, a leading national non-profit provider of housing for the homeless. The overall league sack leader will have $10,000 donated in his name.
Sakrete was founded in 1936 and is the original bagged dry cement mix brand in North America. The Sakrete brand is owned and managed by Oldcastle APG/Bonsal American, Inc.
