Redskins Players List of Community Service is Long & Impressive

New, comments

Community service is something we all should be doing but rarely make time to. Certainly, coaches and fans value players that give back to the community, and the Redskins organization has always been a strong franchise in this department (even with the losing seasons). With it being the holiday season, here's a list of all the Redskins players and all the charity work/foundations they work with. Special thanks to Matt Terl in helping fill in some of the holes with this list.

2011 Christmas Season:

Don's Wood Fire Pizza - Pizza place served free food and drinks to raise money for Africa Missions. To help serve food was Lorenzo Alexander, Logan Paulsen, Graham Gano, Kedric Golston, Rocky McIntosh, and Roy Helu.

Darrell Green's annual "Christmas with the Redskins." - At this particular event, the players and other various members of the organization are given a name and picture of their appointed child, and they go out and buy that child shoes, clothes, and a unique gift. Whole team.

Coat Drive - The Redskins Charitable Foundation and Redskins players Oshiomogho Atogwe, David Anderson, Terrence Austin, Brandon Banks, DeJon Gomes, Sean Locklear, Darrion Scott, Donte' Stallworth, Josh Wilson, Dough Worthington, Logan Paulsen and Travon Bellamy went to the Macy's in downtown D.C. to hand out winter clothes to 300 underserved children from the greater metro area.

"Skins Santa Shoppe" at FedExField - The event is held in the locker room, and 1,100 area school children get to walk through with their favorite Redskins player and pick out their favorite toy for the holidays. The toys are supplied by the Redskins in conjunction with the U.S. Marine Corps and the Touchdown for Tots toy drive. Redskins players include Oshiomogho Atogwe, Brandon Banks, Travon Bellamy, Chris Chester, Reed Doughty, Chris Neild, Cole Pemberton, Markus White, Erik Cook, Nick Sundberg, Ryan Kerrigan, Darrel Young, Rob Jackson.
