Seahawks In The Community
With the holiday season in full swing, the Seahawks upped their presence in the community this week, with the team and several of its players giving time to those in need.
This past Monday, Seahawks offensive lineman George Fant and defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson hosted a holiday gift-giving event at Virginia Mason Athletic Center, inviting families from Renton Youth & Family Services to spend an evening at team headquarters interacting with a handful of Fant and Jefferson’s Seattle teammates, including Bobby Wagner, Elijah Nkansah, Nazair Jones, and Branden Jackson.
The Seahawks’ community spirit continued Tuesday across the state, where cornerback Shaquill Griffin and linebacker Shaquem Griffin, as well as Kam Chancellor, visited Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital in Spokane, delivering gifts to and spending time with young patients and their families. On that same day back in the Seattle-area, Seahawks defensive end Dion Jordan hosted a holiday party for 100 Special Olympics Washington athletes, while receiver Tyler Lockett and Sea Gal Bronwyn met with students at West Seattle Elementary to talk about the power of reading.
