Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner and his team, embarking on a new philanthropic journey, “Bwagz Sees You,” visited all nine of LIHI’s Seattle tiny house homeless villages. Wagner and his team delivered much needed food, equipment, hygiene products and other supplies to Northlake, Interbay, Othello, Camp Second Chance, Tiny House, Georgetown, Whittier Heights, True Hope and Lake Union Villages. These villages, with the help of dedicated volunteers and LIHI staff, are currently serving hundreds of homeless individuals and families.
In addition to visiting and delivering supplies, Wagner purchased nine tiny houses to aid in the development of more village sites. “We wake up in the morning maybe concerned about what’s on social media whereas, I feel like they may wake up wondering where they will get their next meal and supplies from. When times are hard they probably ask themselves if anyone sees them or if anyone can help. I want them to know that I do,” stated Wagner.
It is no secret that Wagner is a man for the people. In the past few months, he has fought against childhood hunger with, “Tackling Weekend Hunger,” hosted “Pro-Bowling with Bobby Wagner” for underserved kids, presented “Walk with Wagner” to bring Stroke Awareness to the Seattle area, participated in Safeway Sweepstakes raising $50,000 for charity and made many personal donations to aid in the development of our youth.
“BWagz Sees you” is possible due to contributors such as Hertz (transport van providers), Riveting Wrap (vehicle wrap sponsor), Costco (partial supply donor), and Bucca Di Beppo Italian: Seattle (hot meal support). Initiative is being coordinated by Wagner’s team Element13 Marketing & Management and La Shanda Hurst.
I had the pleasure of meeting this young man a couple years ago at another charitable event my grandson and I volunteered at, along with Richard SHERMAN, Bobby Wagner is a very kind, caring man he was clearly raised from a loving home. Keep up the great work Bwagz!!!
