Dashon Goldson’s Gobble-Gobble Giveaway

By Shamia Holloway November 19, 2015

When he’s not making defensive plays on the field, Washington Redskins Free Safety Dashon Goldson is making a difference off the field.  Goldson, in partnership with the Capital Area Food Bank, distributed turkeys to 200 families at Suitland High School on Monday, November 16.  He even brought along teammates Deveron Carr, Dashaun Phillips, Trenton Robinson, DeAngelo Hall, Duke Ihenacho, Keenan Robinson, Keyshoen Jarrett and Deshazor Everett.

The distribution was part of Goldson’s The Highest Point Foundation, which aims to serve underprivileged members of the community through various event and NFL ticket giveaways.
The Redskins players were also joined Dr. Kevin Maxwell, Chief Executive Officer of Prince George’s County Public Schools; Prince George’s Councilwoman Karen Toles; and the Suitland High School Football team.
Hunger exists in every single neighborhood in the Washington metro region, which is why the Capital Area Food Bank takes a regional approach to providing food to children, seniors and families.  In FY 2015, the food bank distributed 10,394,361 pounds of food to residents living in Prince George’s County, where 14.8 percent of residents struggle with hunger.
A special thanks to Dashon Goldson and his teammates for helping the food bank take hunger off the map!
