Mayors of Super Bowl Cities Wager Volunteer Service

As the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers prepare to face off in Super Bowl 50, the mayors from the two cities have come up with a friendly wager that focuses on the importance of volunteering and community service. This will mark the fourth year of the Service Bowl bet.

Mayor Michael Hancock of Denver and Mayor Jennifer Roberts of Charlotte agreed that the winning mayor would arrange for the mayor from the opposing team to participate in a day of volunteer service with AmeriCorps members. 

This service project will be carried out in partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency that administers AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and other volunteer programs.

Although the worst of the Great Recession of 2008-2009 is over, many low-income families are still struggling to keep their heads above water financially. They often face challenges finding and keeping jobs, getting out of debt, establishing or restoring credit, and building savings and wealth. At the same time, many jobs are going unfilled as employers are unable to find workers for positions that require increasing levels of knowledge and skills. As part of its commitment to increasing economic opportunity, the Social Innovation Fund (SIF) has invested in several partnership models to connect low-income individuals to employment.
