NFL "Volunteer Playbook" promotes the Family Care Foundation

The National Football League is still promoting the Family Care Foundation in its Volunteer Playbook.

Over a year ago, it was reported here that the NFL and NFL Charities was promoting the Family Care Foundation on the web site
Since then, the page referring to the Family Care Foundation has changed and they are not listed there any more. The original page which listed the Family Care Foundation was at http://www.jointheteam/getinvolved.asp
Now it is at
and does not mention the Family Care Foundation.

However, they are still promoted in the NFL's "Volunteer Playbook."

At there is link to download a PDF of the "NFL's Volunteer Playbook."

On page 9 of the PDF (page 14-15 of the playbook), there is a section entitled "So you're ready to get involved...Websites for volunteers"
This is followed by this paragraph:

"Becoming a volunteer can be one of the most rewarding choices you make in life. Most cities, towns and communities in America have service agencies to address the needs of our sick, homeless and hungry residents. There are also hundreds of national organizations looking for volunteers. Below is a partial list."

There are various sections such as General, Children, Family, Community Building, and Volunteer Search Engines. FCF is listed in the Family section along with Senior Corps.

On page 15 (page 9 in the PDF) one finds the following.

8. Familycare -
Familycare Foundation (FCF) operates projects and provides support and training for grassroots organizations in developing countries.

Here is some contact information if you would like to let them know how you feel about the NFL sponsoring the Family Care foundation and promoting them as an organization that volunteers (including children) should contact to find volunteer oppurtunities.

Weekly Poll

What should the weekly poll be changed to?

 The every so often poll.

 The semi-anual poll.

 Whenever the editor gets to it poll.

 The poll you never heard about because you have never looked at previous polls which really means the polls that never got posted.

 The out dated poll.

 The who really gives a crap poll.
