Letter: It’s terrific to see players give back to community

It’s terrific to see players give back to community

It was with great pleasure that we recently picked up The News and read of the generous, kind and considerate actions of so many Buffalo Bills players this holiday season. They went out of their way to make a better holiday season for so many families. It showed a very positive side of a group of people who could easily ignore the difficult challenges facing other individuals in their daily lives.

Those challenges faced can seem like they are overwhelming at times, with no one to turn to for help. These young men have recognized this and stepped forward to try to make a positive difference for so many in the community. We applaud their actions and hope others will follow their example.

After saying this, I would appeal to these young men to keep up the good work and encourage them to continue their efforts throughout the year. Kids will always benefit from having positive role models in their lives who demonstrate that good comes out of helping others. It does not always have to be through monetary donations but can be from showing the families and kids you genuinely care.

We would say to those players: You have been blessed to be in a position to change lives. Take it and run with it. Make a difference, and not just during the holiday season. Good going, guys!
