On August 7, 2014, 11 Shred Love participants received bikes, helmets and tickets to the New York Jets pre-season game against the Colts at MetLife Stadium. We were selected by Up2Us for this opportunity. Up2Us is a leader in the sports-based youth development movement. We’ve partnered with Up2Us on several events and opportunities in the past, including the recent Dick’s Sporting Goods – Sports Matter Initiative and were extremely excited about this opportunity as well. We typically offer mountain biking through JORBA – Trips for Kids during the spring and summer seasons and felt this was perfect to offer to the students that typically partake in our mountain biking outings.
On behalf of the students that attended, along with their parents, myself and Shred Love, I would like to extend a special thanks to Up2Us, Christine from Up2Us, MetLife Stadium, and last but not least, the New York Jets. We had a great time! Thank you for helping us impact youth through sports!
P.S. Bear with us as we redesign our site!
On Saturday, 9/11/2010, Shred Love joined Evangelist Kathleen Lowery and Gospel Services Non-Denominational Church for its Back to School event. Thanks to the beautiful weather, families from the community were able to enjoy an outdoor movie and plenty of food. At the end of the event, bookbags full of school supplies were distributed, along with jewelry and wallets for the adults. Shred Love donated over 100 books! The books were a part of a donation to Shred Love on behalf of Half Price Books, Corporation for National & Community Service, and Up2Us.
Overall it was a beautiful day, to serve the community and remember those impacted by 9/11.
