’Tis the season for giving and San Francisco 49ers’ cornerback Richard Sherman has risen to the occasion. Earlier this week, the NFL star cleared over $27,000 worth of student lunch debt for California children, according to ABC.
“It’s the most generous thing to happen for these kids,” said Cabrillo Middle School principal Stan Garber. “There’s plenty in need and he didn’t neglect them. It was the perfect way to give back and help them. It was the kindest, most generous gesture.”
Cabrillo received a personal check for over $7,000 from the NFL star while the Tacoma Public Schools District received $20,000.
“Richard’s gesture created such goodwill for the 49ers that they went on to sack Aaron Rogers and the Green Bay Packers the next day on national TV by a score of 37-8,” Garber said on the school’s website. “Go 49ers, Go Richard Sherman.”
The donation came a day after the cornerback was awarded the National Football League Players Association’s Week 11 Community MVP. Sherman has gained a solid reputation for his generosity. He started two nonprofits—the Richard Sherman Family Foundation and Blanket Coverage Foundation—which have collectively raised $1.5 million since 2013 and helped more than 70,000 people in need. Many of the recipients have been students in low-income communities who need school supplies and clothing.
The compassionate player…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
