Dunn, LUCK

Thanks to News One, Warrick Dunn got some air time for something other than football.

Dunn has a charity called, Warrick Dunn Charities. His charity helps provide single parents with housing and is partnered with Atlanta’s Habitat for Humanity and Aaron’s, Inc. Dunn has been doing this since 1997.

As a late Mother’s Day gift, Dunn surprised Kimberly Kindel and her three children with their first home along with $5k to help with the down payment. Dunn said helping single mother’s has been therapy for him since losing his own mother in the line of duty when he was just 18 years old.

“Losing my mom at that early age, I knew what her dream was, and to be able to share this moment with another single parent who’s providing, and putting her family in a position to be successful long-term for me is — I can’t truly describe the emotions,” Dunn said.

      Dear Mr. Dunn my name is Cecilse Wiggins, I am a single mother with three children. I have been trying very hard to make it on my own for the past three and a half years now, but I am constantly running into brick walls and closeing doors. I was in an abusive relationship for over 28 years, I finallaly gained enough strength to leave one final time, and have remained free for almost 4 years now.I clean homes for a living. And am barely making ends, and sidesa meet.My oldest child has begun college at LeCorDon Blu in Orlando Florida, while my two boys and myself remain here in Hahira Georgia. I would like to return to school as well in August to be able to provide a better future for us all. If it is at all possible in any shape, form, or fashion that you could be a blessing to my family, we would consider it a blessing and a privelege. please assist us if you can. Thank you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
