Here is the article about Richard Sherman--former Seattle Seahawk--and how he helped fill the shelves of a food bank in Washington state.
The Maple Valley Food Bank and the Covington Storehouse were out of provisions, when trucks filled with donations arrived from the Richard Sherman Family Foundation.
He helped in Seattle--and now, in San Francisco, where he is currently playing, made a huge difference for a bunch of schoolkids.
The day after the National Football League Players Association named Sherman as the Week 11 Community MVP, he handed the principal of Cabrillo Middle School in Santa Clara, a personal check to pay off all the students' outstanding debt. The principal was funny--he thanked Sherman and said the 49ers got so much good mojo from the action that 'they went on to sack Aaron Rodgers and beat the Packers 37-8!'
Last month, Sherman wrote a check for more than $20k to pay off all the school debts at the public schools in Tacoma, Washington, too!
Since 2013, Sherman has raised more than a million dollars to help students in low-income communities with school supplies and clothes.
Sherman, who went to Stanford, understands the importance of education, and has been helping kids succeed since he began in the NFL, and had the means to assist. Here's a story from 2 years ago.
