Garfield Gators Enter Three Year Partnership

The KBK Foundation has entered into a 3 year partnership with the Garfield Gators Football Team. The program led by Bob Jones, for youth ages 5-14, provides neighborhood children a place where academics, discipline and personal accountability are encouraged. Sponsorship from The KBK Foundation will assist with scholarships being offered to youth to participate in the Gator football program and cover items such as equipment and travel. Bob Jones, a former Defensive Cornerback for the University of Notre Dame, got his start as a Gator and owes his own success to the program. The men and women who coach these young people serve as role models in a neighborhood where economic, environmental and social challenges are commonplace.
