The latest good deed from the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick occurred this past weekend. On Saturday, Kaepernick and his girlfriend, Hot 97 personality Nessa, dropped off two boxes of suits at a New York parole office.
The grand gesture was an endorsement of the 100 Suits for 100 Men program that provides suits for men and women transitioning from the penal system to civilian life.
Kevin Livingston, CEO of 100 Suits, talked to TMZ about how the experience working alongside Kaaepernick was.
“He was a great partner,” he said. “He went above and beyond all expectations to help give these guys a second chance.”
“He’s a hero in my eyes, he’s a hero in the eyes of the guys who are going to be receiving these suits. Colin, you’re the man to me, you’re a hero to the men of South Jamaica, Queens.”
Kaepernick’s future in the NFL may not be entirely clear yet, but his legacy with the activist community is well on its way to being cemented.
