Jameis Winston invited 10 children selected by United Way Suncoast to come to One Buc Place & later hosted a toy collection drive at Bill Currie Ford.
Tomorrow – Tuesday, December 6 at 5:30 p.m., Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston will host the second annual Famous Jameis Jamboree, presented by Bill Currie Ford, at One Buccaneer Place. Fans should bring a new, unwrapped toy to receive admission to the family-friendly event. Toy donations will support students at Buccaneers Academy schools – 24 Hillsborough County schools adopted by the Buccaneers through a curriculum-based program that engages underserved students and encourages learning. On Tuesday, attendees will have the chance to enjoy interactive games, PLAY 60 drills, music, food trucks, and holiday cheer led by Winston and his teammates, as well as Buccaneers Cheerleaders and Captain Fear.
As the "Quarterback" of the Buccaneers Academies initiative, which serves more than 14,000 students that are located in mostly economically-distressed areas of Hillsborough County, Winston is dedicated to helping youth reach their full academic potential. On Tuesday evening, Winston will interact with children, participate in the family-friendly activities, and share his message on the importance of supporting the community's youth.
Tuesday's event is another initiative of Bucs for a Better Bay, the team's far-reaching commitment to making Tampa Bay better today and for generations to come. A key component is the Buccaneers Academy programming, through which the Buccaneers provide resources and hands-on participation from Buccaneers players, cheerleaders and staff. Each of the Buccaneers Academy schools has also received a court-sized shade cover from the team that provides an improved environment for students to safely participate in physical health and wellness activities.
