NFL & NCAA Donate To Youth Helmet Program

The NFL, NFLPA and the NCAA have joined with the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment to donate about $1 million to an initiative started by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The money will provide new helmets to youth football players in low-income communities.
quote:

"The program, announced Tuesday, will remove helmets that are at least 10 years old and replace them with new models while providing safety education to coaches. It is expected to distribute 13,000 new helmets this year starting in July.

The pilot program will take place in four communities: the Bay Area, the Gulf Coast region, northern Ohio and greater New York City."
As of this year, National Athletic Equipment Reconditioners Association members will no longer recondition or recertify any helmet that is at least 10 years old. They will however use those helmets for research.
