Proceeds benefit Gwinnett County Public Schools Community-Based Mentoring Program
Please join me in helping to provide positive mentors for male students by making a donation!
Each week during the regular season, the NFLPA #CommunityMVP program recognizes one player who has demonstrated a commitment to making a positive impact in his community. I’m honored to have been chosen as the Week 12 NFLPA Community MVP following my annual “Atkins Week of Giving” that my wife and I host each holiday season. We’re making a $5,000 donation to Gwinnett County Public Schools Community Based Mentor Partnership – to kick off this fundraiser! All funds raised will help connect young men with mentors and resources to help them grow into successful and impactful men.
WHO YOU’LL BE SUPPORTING
At Gwinnett County Public Schools, they believe in the Power of One… one caring adult mentor can change a child’s life. While school counselors, teachers, and family members all play a role in keeping students in school and learning, the involvement of a community mentor can make a meaningful, lasting connection.
The Community-Based Mentoring program pairs caring adults with male and female students in grades 4 through 12 to provide guidance, encouragement, and support to help them become successful young adults, both in and out of school.
Thank you for supporting my cause and all of your support throughout my career!
