Greenwich Youth Football and Greenwich Youth Cheerleading Leagues Support Our Troops Event took place during the playoff games for the GYFL on Sunday at Cardinal Stadium and Field 7.

Approximately 600 athletes from the GYFL and GYCL signed two banners that will be sent to the 2-1 Infantry Battalion at Joint Base Lewis McCord (JBLM) in Afghanistan and to their families stateside.

A collection of items for the JBLM Children’s Holiday Party and items for activity bags the children can enjoy while they await the arrival of their parents return home from Afghanistan in early 2013 was well supported.
