24 - CAPE G ZEIWE, Friday, March 24 - March 30, 2000 New York Giants' Luke Petitgout tackles United Way of Delaware projects New York Giants tackle Luke Petitgout, a Sussex County native, wants to give back to the state he grew up in. And, he's chosen United Way of Delaware to help him. Petitgout, a graduate of Sus- sex Central High School in Georgetown, will be volunteering for United Way in a variety of ways. Petitgout played his first season with the Giants in 1999. A first round draft pick, he was chosen by the Giants following an out- standing academic and athletic collegiate career at Notre Dame. Petitgout's ties to Delaware re- main tight. His mother and father both live in Georgetown and he returns to the area on a regular ba- sis. "United Way of Delaware is a terrific organization, committed to supporting the needs of our community," Petitgout said. "I am pleased that, through involvement with the United Way, I will be able to give something back to the community that helped me get where I am now. I am looking for- ward to the PETITGOUT opportunity to work with oth- er Delaware residents to make the lives of those less fortunate a little easier." As a volunteer for United Way, Petitgout will participate in Days of Caring volunteer projects, make public appearances and at- tend events, and tape public serv- ice announcements for television and radio. United Way will also produce a special trading card filled with Petitgout's football stats and information about the United Way. Petitgout is following in the footsteps of other great players. / The National Football League and the United Way have a 25-year partnership. Across the country, NFL owners, players, coaches, teams and the league have made United Way their charity of choice. United Way of Delaware, and the more than 100,000 people who contribute to it, touch the lives of one in three Delawareans through 180 programs and servic- es operated by United Way mem- ber agencies, and through hun- dreds more agencies that receive gifts designated by United Way contributors. In 1999, United Way raised $28 million on behalf of needy children, families and the elderly. Overall, United Way of Delaware ranks second in the na- tion in fund-raising performance over the past five years.
