ATLANTA — “I have had the fortune of serving on the board of The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club of Greater Atlanta since 2014, comments James Butler, Super Bowl Champ New York Giants.
“Our primary responsibilities are to help raise funds and grow awareness. With the Super Bowl coming to Atlanta, I know this event will accomplish both goals. I have worked with this organization since 2001 as a freshman at Georgia Tech.

I am passionate about building this long-tenured relationship because it helps at-risk youth in underserved neighborhoods.”
The NFL Alumni event at the OAK Atlanta is a celebration of The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club’s commitment to the community through raising funds for a worthy cause servicing close to 1,800 children in the Greater Atlanta area.
