Colin Kaepernick may not be on an NFL roster, but he isn’t letting that deter him from contributing off of the gridiron. In an attempt to help families in need, Kaepernick donated 4,500 ‘impossible patties’ to the Los Angeles regional food bank.
While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be prevalent, unemployment rates continue to rise. As a result, families are having a tough time putting food on the table.
Therefore, Kaepernick partnered with ABC7 Los Angeles to help those struggling for meals. Cheryl Fair, the president and general manager of KABC-TV Los Angeles, expressed her thanks to Kaepernick and his efforts.
“We have a history of supporting the local food banks, this is part of our mission in the communities we serve,” said Cheryl Fair, president and general manager of KABC-TV Los Angeles. “This year, the need is significantly greater; we are seeing more people experiencing food insecurity due to the pandemic.
That is why we are grateful to Colin Kaepernick and the Know Your Rights Camp, who share the same goal to reduce food insecurities and stepped up with a donation of carefully selected food that is a healthy alternative for communities who simply do not have access.”
In recent years, Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp has been doing plenty of charitable work around the world. Back in April, Kaepernick and his organization made a sizable donation for coronavirus relief in POC communities. While he remains exiled by NFL teams, Kaepernick continues to be a role model off of the field.
