Hurricane Ida Floods DYFA Property
The start of Dover Youth Football & Cheer’s 2021 Season was met head on with Hurricane Ida!
Extensive damage was done to our Field, Equipment Trailer and most of all our Concession Stand as water reached above counter height. Our Concession Stand is our biggest asset and the way we pay for our EMTs, Referee Fees and game day necessities! We are starting from scratch and need to purchase many large commercial items. Any amount donated is greatly appreciated and goes right back to our youth! We arent just a team, but a family.. and this is hitting us all hard. Thank you for your support!! ❤️🖤
