Dearborn Heights, MI – In March, HYPE Athletics Community received a check in the amount of $500 from Gridiron Tech, LLC and Citizens Bank. Gridiron Tech LLC, CEO Herman Moore, former Detroit Lions Wide Receiver, and President Joy Grzelakowski visited the HYPE Recreation Center to present Ali Sayed, Justin Cessante and a group of youth with the check.
“We are extremely appreciative of Herman’s continuous support and Citizens Bank’s sponsorship with Gridiron Tech, which helped makes this happen. The check will help youth attend summer camps and clinics,” said Justin Cessante, Director of Community Relations.
“It’s great to be able to work with an organization like Gridiron Tech who looks to give back,” said Pat Reardon, Citizens Bank Commercial Banking President, Southeast Michigan. “HYPE Athletics Community is making a positive impact in the community, and we’re glad to play a part in helping them out”.
