Redskins legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Darrell Green’s philanthropic efforts are being recognized and appreciated, as his 25th annual “Christmas With The Redskins” has been nominated for Best Charity Event of the Year for the fourth annual Black Celebrity Giving Awards.
Joined by current Redskins Robert Griffin III, Alfred Morris, Chris Chester, Shawn Lauvao, Kedric Golston, Keenan Robinson, DeAngelo Hall, Bashaud Breeland and Akeem Davis, Green opened the doors to more than 175 kids in need that received shoes, clothes and other gifts.
“I have been doing this for 25 years and it’s always the same,” Green said at the event. “It’s a privilege to wake up this morning and think right and be willing to care about other people. As a young man coming into this city and coming into this profession, I just had a vision and take the influence that came with that job and the resources and access, and I wanted to turn it into something with benefits. Think about other people.”
From now until Jan. 18 at 8 p.m., fans can vote for “Christmas With The Redskins” as the Best Charity Event Of The Year at this link.
Winners will be announced online via @BlkCelebGiving (Twitter and Instagram) at 8 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 19th in honor of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service.
