The Meaning of the Season, Part 2

Another former 'Nole, Warrick Dunn, is well known for giving back to the community. Dunn lost his mother, a Baton Rouge police officer, when she was shot in an ATM robbery while he was in high school.

When he was drafted, Dunn set up a charity - Homes for the Holidays - which helps provide a new, furnished home to a single parent before Christmas every year.

This morning, he surprised a single father of four in Tallahassee with a new home.

To date, Dunn has assisted 69 single mothers and 181 children and dependents:
  • 29 mothers and 74 children in Tampa, Fla.
  • 23 mothers and 64 children & dependents in Baton Rouge, La.
  • 17 mothers and 43 children & dependents in Atlanta, Ga.
In the midst of all of the materialism of the holidays, it is so heartwarming to read about people giving so much of themselves to make others smile.

Is it any wonder this man has been nominated as the NFL's Neighborhood MVP?
