Colin Kaepernick continues to give back.
This week, Kaepernick made his way to New York City to donate custom suits to Kevin Livingston’s 100 Suits For 100 Men charity which provides free haircuts, outfits and live skills to ex-convicts who have been locked up for five or more years.
The hope of the charity is to provide the men who are looking for a fresh start the proper tools they will need to get back on their feet.
Kaepernick donated 50 suits to the organization and hand delivered them to Livingston, which prompted Livingston to call the free agent quarterback a “hero” for all he’s done.
“He was a great partner,” Livingston told TMZ Sports. “He went above and beyond all expectations to help give these guys a second chance.”
“He’s a hero in my eyes, he’s a hero in the eyes of the guys who are going to be receiving these suits. Colin you’re the man to me, you’re a hero to the men of South Jamaica Queens.”
It is just the latest charitable donation Kaepernick has given after making it his focus to help those in need after making headlines last season for his protest of the national anthem to raise awareness of systemic racism and social inequality across the nation.
Kaepernick hasn’t been receiving much interest from NFL teams who view him as an off-field distraction, but he’s not letting that stop him from doing something that truly makes a difference.
