James Jones, Formerly Homeless Super Bowl Star, Gives Back To Kids In Need
Football has gripped the nation’s attention as it does each winter in the lead up to the Super Bowl. For one NFL player, the spotlight is a way to raise awareness about Americans living in poverty.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones recently opened up about growing up homeless and how his past informs his generous spirit today.
Jones told reporters Wednesday he was “homeless from coming out of the hospital until I was a freshman in high school.” Now, the NFL star is enjoying a successful career with the Super Bowl-bound Packers, but he hasn’t forgotten the struggles of his early life — and he’s doing what he can to help children in need.
