Pro Football Player, Lashaun Sanders, Partners With Columbus Gives Back To Give Away Free Toys
By: Black Diamond PR & Sports Management
Sanders is a native of Columbus and recently signed a contract to play for an arena football team, the West Texas Warbirds. In February, Sanders will have to pack up and go to Texas to do what he loves. Before he leaves, he wants to give back to the place he calls home as much as he can.
"An important, and often forgotten, aspect of the holiday season is giving back to those who aren't as fortunate," said Sanders. "Being able to bring joy to others is something I have always enjoyed especially during the holiday season!"
The mission of Columbus Gives Back is to provide social volunteer and philanthropic opportunities for young professionals and to create a culture of community engagement to connect people to central Ohio. They achieve this by not only giving back to the city they love, but also by fostering connectedness with and among their volunteers.
In the past, the Free Store has provided over $50,000 worth of clothes and toys to 500 children across the Columbus community. This is an event that is only one day each year so they need as many volunteers as possible. Sanders plans to help the community shop for what they need, as well as help clean up when needed.
