Atlanta Falcons football player Patrick DiMarco and his wife Kirstin DiMarco sponsored a holiday shopping spree for 16 children from the ACTION! After School Program in Atlanta yesterday.
DiMarco and his teammates helped honor roll students pick out bicycles and helmets, and he offered an unforgettable lesson in how to ride their new bikes in the store aisles while onlookers cheered them on.
After the shopping was done, DiMarco chatted with each of the kids. Two young men shared their dreams to attend Morehouse College and the University of Georgia. Patrick introduced them to a Falcons staff member who he knew was a graduate of Morehouse. The players shared encouraging words with the students about the importance of good grades, hard work, football and college.
We are thankful for our partners in service, the Atlanta Falcons!
