Steelers LaMarr Woodley Donates $60k To Save Kids’ Athletic Programs
I don’t care how much money you have $60k isn’t chump change.
You can find multiple ways to spend $60k, but Woodley found a very special way to give back to his community.
A number of different athletic departments in and around Saginaw, Michigan recently their budget slashed recently and as a result were moving to a pay-for-play system that would require middle-school, junior high and high school students who wanted to participate in sports to pay $75 per year.
“What a blessing,” Saginaw high athletic director Dan Szatkowski said. “He did it for all the kids in Saginaw, not just Saginaw High. It’s for Arthur Hill, SASA, Willie Thompson, Arthur Eddy … all the schools. It makes me proud to know he’s a product of Saginaw. He understands what’s going on. He knows what it means to be a Trojan.”
“If you know him, you know he’s not doing it to see his name in the paper,” Szatkowski said, “He’s beyond that. What a great message this sends to the kids, to the families, to the other people in the city and even the state.”
