Former NFL Star Has Given Away 145 Homes To Single-Parent Families
Former NFL star Warrick Dunn is a breath of fresh air for the NFL. In a league that often generates off-the-field media for its players’ poor conduct, Dunn has drawn the spotlight for providing 145 homes for single parent families.
Dunn’s charity, Warrick Dunn Charities, was created in 1997 and is still incredibly active today providing housing and homes to those who might not otherwise be able to afford it, according to Bleacher Report. Dunn, who does most of his work under the radar, dedicates all of his charity to his mother who was killed while working as a police officer in the line of duty.
Congratulations to Recipient #145. She has worked so hard to achieve her dream of homeownership. WDC was in Tampa… http://t.co/Tku2XALcN4
