In an article posted on the teams’ website, here’s a further explanation of the new partnership, “That’s why The Chris Long Foundation and the Philadelphia Eagles have teamed up with Reach Higher and Summer Search to help students apply for their FAFSA. The goal of their partnership is to help college-aspiring students from low-income backgrounds across the nation to apply to college, get the financial aid they need, and find the support they need to graduate.”
If you do not remember, Long has donated all his game checks for scholarships in the Charlottesville area. He has also done numerous charitable events with his foundation, The Chris Long Foundation. People like Chris Long change the world and it is an honor for him to be a member of the Eagles.
