Del Rio Foundation Gives Back in Mexico

Del Rio Foundation Gives Back in Mexico

The Oakland Raiders took time out of their busy schedules to participate in charitable work in Mexico City.

The Jack Del Rio Foundation made a donation of backpacks, school supplies and playground balls to undeserved children. In addition, a $10,000 check will also be gifted to "Mano Amiga" from the foundation and NFL Mexico and toiletry kits were given to the parents within "Mano Amiga". 

Del Rio and his wife, Linda Del Rio, also donated an additional $8,000 to "Mano Amiga" to be used to purchase athletic uniforms. The Raiders also hosted a free youth football clinic geared towards boys and girls.

Mano Amiga is a non-profit company that organizes and facilitates mission trips for youth organizations from churches and schools and works to help people from Latin American countries that are in need.

Linda Del Rio wanted to give back to the community that is hosting her husband and the Raiders.

"I was inspired by the Sport in the Service of Humanity Conference in Rome," said Linda Del Rio. "After speaking with my fellow delegates, who all do amazing charitable work in the world of sport globally and in Third World countries on a daily basis, I believed that this would be a fantastic opportunity to give something sustainable back to Mexico City within the world of sport."
