NEW BOOSTERS GROUP RAISES $5,000 Wellington Football Foundation Created To Support The Sport In The Community

A new organization has been created to support football programs serving the Wellington community. The Wellington Football Foundation was recently formed as an independent Florida nonprofit corporation to promote and support recreational and scholastic football programs for children of all ages and genders in the Wellington community. The foundation has filed an application with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service seeking to be recognized as a charitable and tax-exempt entity. The WFF is led by a board of directors made up of dedicated community residents, including Sam Logan, Bryan Raymond, Andrew Mack, Angela Logan, Ted Miloch and Brittany Russell. There are no paid positions at the all-volunteer organization. In addition to financial support of football programs, the foundation believes strongly in the value of community service. The Wellington Football Foundation will promote and provide opportunities for players and interested community members to give back to the Wellington community through volunteerism. The WFF’s goals for the remainder of 2021 include raising funds to replace aging and out-of-date equipment for Wellington High School’s football programs

and renovate sports-related equipment rooms. Looking toward 2022 and beyond, the foundation will provide scholarships for players in both school and recreational programs to assist families who may have difficulty in paying participation fees.This will help make sure that no child is prevented from participating in the sport of football due to an inability to pay participation fees. The Wellington Football Foundation’s first project was the renovation of the Wellington High School concession stand.The concession stand now sports a fresh coat of paint on the floors and tables, has been decluttered and is ready for the 2021 season.
