United Way Donates $50,000 to Michael Bennett and The Bennett Foundation

The Bennett Foundation

On December 21st, United Way awarded Michael Bennett a $50,000 check for The Bennett Foundation. Earlier this month, Michael was named the Seattle Seahawks NFL Man of the Year Nominee for his charitable work off the field.

“I think it’s one of the best honors you can possibly get as a player in the NFL because it’s not about stats or how many games you win—it’s about how diligently you work in your community,” Michael told the press.

This year has been a busy one for The Bennett Foundation. From hosting O.C.E.A.N. Football Camps to partnering with iamtheCODE, Michael, Pele, and the team at The Bennett Foundation have worked hard to make a positive impact on communities in need.

“It’s a great honor for me and my family to be able to have this, to be honored in this type of way.”
