With the month of June coming to a close soon, we’ve received an amazing response to the Haddad Sock Game here at Haddad Nissan in Pittsfield!
To refresh your memory if you haven’t been keeping up, The Haddad Sock Game is a charitable campaign that aims to raise money for #HoopsNotCrime. Hoops Not Crime is an outreach program created in Gainesville, Florida with a goal of bringing children and police together, creating better youth relations, and providing basketballs and hoops so that anyone and everyone has the opportunity to play.

What is the Haddad Sock Game?
The Haddad Sock Game is a charitable campaign that spreads across the Haddad Dealerships, designed to spread joy and raise funds for local causes.
What is #HoopsNotCrime?
Created in Gainesville, Florida, #HoopsNotCrime is an outreach program designed to bring kids and cops together. Local police officers, led by Officer Darren Derby, go out into the community and distribute basketballs, hoops, snacks and drinks to start a conversation and build a relationship with the kids of our community.
How do I play?
All you have to do is put on some fantastic socks, snap a picture and post it to one of our Facebook pages (or tag us in your Instagram post) along with the hashtag #HaddadSockGame. For every new post with this hashtag, we will donate $1 toward the purchase of equipment for #HoopsNotCrime.
That’s pretty straight forward right? Now, if you don’t have any funky socks and are in the market for some, you should definitely check out the selection over at Blue Q. Not only are their socks hilarious, they are an esteemed member of the Berkshire business community and have been extremely helpful toward our effort to raise funds for this fantastic cause.
The football players who have received the Heisman Trophy are capable of some incredible feats on the field. However, working with Nissan, these athletes are doing some even more incredible things off the field and in the community.
Among those participants who will help with the construction of the Habitat build are Heisman Trophy winners Tim Brown, Mark Ingram, George Rogers, Billy Sims, and Marcus Mariota.
“While every Habitat home is a blessing, the special relationship with Nissan and the Heisman Trust makes this home build extra special,” said Danny Herron, CEO of the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville. “We take pride in empowering families in realizing the dream of owning their first home, and having the Heisman winners working alongside the many generous volunteers to make this family’s dream come true is an experience we will always remember.”
Nissan and the Heisman Trophy Trust have assembled the best team of players for helping out local communities.
