City of Oxnard accepting grant applications for $10,000 donation from Cowboys, Jones family through Feb. 3, 2017
OXNARD, Calif.–The Dallas Cowboys and team owner Jerry Jones’ spirit of charity continues to touch down in Oxnard. The City of Oxnard will award $2,500 grants to four Oxnard-based nonprofit organizations that provide services to Oxnard residents thanks to a generous $10,000 donation from the Gene and Jerry Jones Family Foundation.
Applications are available at the City Manager’s Office, 300 W. Third St., 4th Floor, and on the City’s website at www.oxnard.org/CowboysCharity. Completed applications must be submitted to the City Manager’s Office by mail, in person or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 3, 2017.
The Jones family provides the generous donation for disbursement to a local nonprofit organization(s) as a token of appreciation to the community for welcoming the Dallas Cowboys, America’s team, to Oxnard for the popular Cowboys summer training camp where tens of thousands of fans from Oxnard and around the nation flock to get a glimpse of the players in action.
The Jones family feels a strong obligation to take the visibility, energy and celebrity of the world’s most powerful sports franchise and channel those dynamic forces toward the bigger purpose of making a difference.
The Cowboys are a popular pick to reach Super Bowl LI. Fans from Oxnard and across the country will cheer on the team as they advance to the playoffs and possibly to the Super Bowl in February.
The City of Oxnard will welcome the Dallas Cowboys to Oxnard again for the 2017 annual summer training camp. Check for details about the camp on the City’s website, www.oxnard.org, as the summer draws nearer.
The four award recipients will be selected randomly. The City of Oxnard will announce the award recipients during the Feb. 7, 2017, city council meeting. For questions, contact James Vega, City Manager’s Office, at (805) 385-7450 or email email@example.com.
