NFL MVP 2009

Jason Witten Named the Home Depot NFL Neighborhood MVP. Witten Honored With $25,000 Donation To The S.C.O.R.E. Foundation For His Commitment To Fighting Domestic Violence

Tampa FL (January 28, 2009)  –  The Home Depot, the world’s largest home improvement retailer and ‘official home improvement sponsor’ of the National Football League, today announced Jason Witten as The Home Depot NFL Neighborhood MVP for the 2008 season. The Home Depot NFL Neighborhood MVP is a national program that recognizes players who are making a positive impact in their local communities through charitable programs and contributions.

Witten was chosen for the award through an online consumer voting contest, which received more than 250,000 votes nationwide. He was one of 17 NFL players honored through the program this year and one of eight program finalists. Warrick Dunn was honored as The Home Depot NFL Neighborhood MVP for the 2007 season.

Witten and the seven Neighborhood MVP finalists rolled up their sleeves today and worked alongside community and The Home Depot associate volunteers to build a state-of-the-art KaBOOM! playground for kids in East Tampa in just one day. In a break in the action, the players were recognized for their good works and Witten was announced the program MVP. A $25,000 donation was presented to Witten’s foundation.
