The Pittsburgh Steelers will be doing their part in the community as part of the NFL 100 initiative.

We can all fall into the trap of the NFL news wire. You know, when players spout off on social media, get arrested or have a misstep either on or off the field.

It can be addicting.

But one aspect of the NFL which often gets overlooked is the amount of good the players, coaches and organizations do in their respective communities. I get it, bad news drives the needle far more than the positive news.

A player getting arrested is bigger news than a player donating their entire salary to helping communities with multi-cultural education.

For the Pittsburgh Steelers, they are doing their part with the NFL 100, celebrating the NFL’s 100th season, mission by hosting a Feeding Children Everywhere event at their UPMC Rooney Sports Comples facility.

As Burt Lauten points out, the event will be Thursday, June 6th, from 1-3 p.m. ET and it won’t just be some employees of the Steelers there helping out. No, it will be front office employees, coaches and even players all doing their part to help feed children everywhere.

Feeding Children Everywhere is an organization committed to pursuing a hunger-free world. They will help the Steelers pack up over 15,000 meals that will help the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank.

So, if you are in the Pittsburgh area, and need the services of this organization, feel free to stop down and be a part of the event.
