Hometown Hero Spotlight: Rodney Wyatt
This game was extra special as we had the honor of celebrating our very own Rodney Wyatt as our Hometown Hero!
Rodney Wyatt has been an integral part of our community, both on and off the field. His dedication to helping Veterans and his unwavering commitment to making a positive impact in our hometown have not gone unnoticed.
During the game, the Jumbotron lit up with a heartwarming video highlighting Rodney's incredible journey and contributions to our community. Rodney's passion for Veterans and his love for our city have always shone brightly.
As he stepped onto the field to accept this well-deserved honor, the cheers from the crowd were deafening!
Let's give a big round of applause to Rodney Wyatt for being a true hometown hero.
Note: They mistakenly wrote USAF and Army but it should say USMC and Army.
NEWTOWN, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- Every Wednesday, Rodney Wyatt is readying his troop of volunteers for the weekly food giveaway at his nonprofit called Salute 2 Service.
"We provide groceries and staples for veterans and the community as well," said Wyatt.
Each week, boxes full of fruits, vegetables and meats are distributed.
"There's a great need for that," he said.
Wyatt founded the nonprofit back in 2013 and serves as the executive director.
"We want to make Salute 2 Service a hub of services for veterans and families," he said. "We provide food, and clothing, connect them to temporary to permanent housing."
Wyatt says the goal is "to take care of the total veteran," and it's all part of a much broader mission to "leave no veteran behind."
