Resolution celebrates Foles’ accomplishments on the field as well as his philanthropic efforts throughout the City of Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA – City Councilmember Allan Domb (At Large) recently introduced a resolution honoring and celebrating Super Bowl LII MVP, Nick Foles, for the positive impact he has made as an athlete and community leader with the City of Philadelphia.

“Nick Foles brought continuous energy to Philadelphia on and off the field,” said Councilmember Domb. “In addition to his leadership and athleticism, Nick gave Philadelphians a reason to be excited and to celebrate. No matter where Foles ends up in his career, Philadelphia will always have a place for him.”

In addition to initiating the memorable “Philly Special” and leading the underdog Eagles to their first National Championship in franchise history, he made community engagement and philanthropy a priority. As a partner with the Philadelphia’s Children’s Alliance, Foles consistently donated his time and money to the organization and worked to provide resources for victims of child sexual abuse.

“What makes Nick such a true Philadelphian, is the fact that he made this city his home,” said Domb. “He donated his time, his money, and his position to assist children in their time of need. Foles made his time in Philadelphia about more than just sports, and for that his legacy will live on.”

Nick Foles was a member of the Philadelphia Eagles from 2012-2014 and returned to the City of Brotherly Love in 2017 to lead the Eagles to victory in Super Bowl LII.
