The LA Rams continue to generously support IHADLA students (“Dreamer scholars”) and their families with their community outreach.
As part of their All Community Team program, Rams players and staff buy tickets to every game and donate them to non-profit organizations throughout Los Angeles. Andrew Whitworth, offensive tackle for the Rams, generously selected the “I Have A Dream” Foundation – Los Angeles (IHADLA) to receive tickets for the September 17th game between the Rams and Redskins!
IHADLA Dreamer scholars and their Families had an Excitement-Filled Day Thanks to the Community Outreach of Andrew Whitworth and the LA Rams
Events like these provide a wonderful opportunity for our Dreamer scholars and staff to bond and create memories with their families. The experience proved especially exciting and memorable for the young Dreamer scholars, as they took in all the action and had a great time cheering and supporting their hometown Rams. All the attendees had a wonderful time.
Our deepest gratitude goes out to the LA Rams organization for their commitment to youth empowermeeament and education in the Los Angeles community and their valued partnership with IHADLA.
A special thank you to Mr. Andrew Whitworth for his generous contribution! We hope you have an awesome season!
