9-11 National Day of ServiceIn recognition of National Day of Service and the 12th Anniversary of September 11th, the Miami Dolphins Special Teams volunteer program will be preparing care packages to send to overseas stationed troops.

The third-annual care packaging event will take place at Sun Life Stadium on September 11th from 5-9 pm at Gate C Plaza.

Last year’s event resulted in more than 750 care packages sent to troops serving overseas, reaching over 3,500 soldiers.  This year’s goal is to collect enough items to package and distribute 1,000 care packages.

There are many ways for you to get involved:
