For four years now, the Get It Dunn Neighborhood Watch Group has been holding The Harvest Bowl for the kids in the neighborhood. But for the kids playing here, its more than just a game of football.
"Our main focus is giving back to the needy, which is the Second Harvest Food Bank," said organizer Jermaine Hunter. "So its not hard to find a bunch of neighborhood kids to play this game."
The kids raise money, collect non-perishable food items for the food bank and do community service throughout the year. Hunter says they're using football to teach kids how to give.
"Its something that is dear to our hearts, and we want to make sure our kids know how to give once they get older because they were little when we started this, and now we have a whole new group of little kids that we can mentor and help grow."
The little bit of snow and cold temperatures we got this weekend didn't stop kids like Jacob Anderson from coming out to play. He said, no matter what the weather was like, nothing compares to helping out people in your neighborhood.
"Its indescribable because its just great to give back to these people because they work hard and just some kids can't afford stuff like this. So its great to give back to the community," said Anderson.
Organizers say along teaching these kids the importance of helping those in need, this annual football game keeps kids off the streets.
"There's so much violence going on, we just got to keep it clean," said organizer Javier Perez. "This is a time we get together. We look forward to doing this, the children have a good time doing it and of course I have a good time doing it."
This year, the kids raised nearly $2,000 for the Second Harvest Food Bank.
