General, Team Weeks | Dec 16th, 2013

       Modell’s puts a huge emphasis on being local and supporting organizations and schools in our communities. Through programs and events such as Team Weeks and Community Weekend, Modell’s has been able to establish and develop mutually beneficial partnerships with a number of local youth sports organizations and schools. Modell’s is proud to be a partner of two local high schools that fielded state champion football teams in 2013.

       In Maryland, Northwest High School Jaguars football team of Germantown, MD, near store 92-Germantown, won its second state football championship, first since 2004. The Jaguars, 12 – 2 on the year, beat Suitland High School 33 – 16 in the Class 4A State Championship game on Friday, December 6ths has partnered with the athletic department over the years providing giveaways and coupons for the football and basketball pep rallies throughout the year, as well as sponsoring their summer youth basketball camps.
