It certainly isn’t rare to see several people running inside the Redskins’ indoor training facility, but on Tuesday, the hustling was for a tremendous cause.
One hundred members each from the Women of Washington Redskins (WOW) and Redskins Salute – joining forces for the first time – came to Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va., and, under the leadership of current and former Redskins players and cheerleaders, assembled hundreds of care packages for U.S. troops stationed overseas.
The Care Package Assembly Night, also hosted by Papa John’s and Coca-Cola, was a huge success.
“It’s really cool,” said Redskins fullback Darrel Young, whose brother serves in the military. “It lets them know that they’re appreciated for everything that they do. Just sending them anything that you can send, they’re always appreciative, because they can’t always get the goods that they like. So you just like to send anything over there to show you care.”
Also taking part Tuesday were safety Akeem Davis, Redskins alums Dexter Manley and Ravin Caldwell, defensive coordinator Joe Barry, Redskins Cheerleader Ambassadors, Felicia and Angela, and Jacqueline Griffin, the mother of quarterback Robert Griffin III and a retired Army sergeant.
