Through December 24th, the Redskins will be collecting beanies, scarves and other winter gear outside of the Dulles Town Center mall team store.
Those that donate will be entered into a drawing to win either two tickets to this Sunday’s Cowboys game or a pair of Bose headphones.
Saftey Duke Ihenacho helped kick off the drive Monday afternoon for a few hours, asking fans to give away any extra warm clothing and obliging other with some autographs and photos.
“It’s getting cold. It’s the season of giving,” Ihenacho said. “There’s plenty of people that need scarves and beanies and socks and gloves, things to keep them warm during the holidays, things that we take for granted. We’re here today, we’re trying to collect as many…as possible before Christmas.
“You want to feel connected to the community. You want to feel connected to the people and the environment,” Ihenacho said. “Anytime you’re in the position that we are in, you try to do whatever you can to help. You would be cheating yourself if you were at this position and you never gave back to somebody who needs it.”
Running back Alfred Morris also showed up for a little bit to encourage people to donate, and greeted fans doing some last-minute holiday shopping.
“Things like this definitely help put us at ease,” Ihenacho said. “Things like these are bright spots throughout the season.”
The team store will have a box outside the entrance to drop in items and sign up for the prize drawings through Wednesday night.
