Colin Kaepernick Donates to Parolees

In Off The Field by Ashleigh Binder

Despite being downgraded to a backup quarterback who pretty much never saw the field this season, Colin Kaepernick is still one of the biggest names in professional football.  He was spotted in New York City donating old suits to a parole office to help others looking to better their lives.  Kaepernick showed up with two boxes of custom made suits as part of his “Know Your Rights Camp” that he started.  The campaign which is fully funded by Kaepernick is to raise awareness and education for youth about interacting with law enforcement officials.

Colin Kaepernick donates custom-made suits outside a New York City parole office 🙌🏽 Via The start of the NFL season is about three months away and free agent Colin Kaepernick is still on the market. While he waits to see if he’ll get signed, Kaepernick is keeping up with his commitment to help empower communities in need. About two days ago, Kaepernick stopped outside of a New York City parole office and donated two large boxes of his custom made suits. The donation benefits 100 Suits, an organization that provides free business attire to men and women who are in the job search process. The Instagram account for 100 Suits posted that the quarterback was at parole office in Queens. That’s love!!!! When you have Superbowl quarter back Colin Kaepernick and HOT 97 host Nessa personally drop off over two huge uhaul boxes of custom made suits at our office @ Queens parole. 100 Suits hopes to reduce recidivism rates by helping people find more gainful employment. By being able to wear appropriate suits to their interviews, these men and women are better equipped to achieve gainful employment, which will ultimately help them to transition into mainstream society and live more productive lives. Through this program, we also provide free hair cuts for men and wig referrals for women, where needed. Because it’s never easy to find a suit that fits perfectly off the rack, 100 Suits also provides an in-house tailor that will make any alterations needed for clients. Remind me again why Kaepernick doesn’t have an NFL contract yet?

Kaepernick was recently named one of Time’s Most Influential People are his boycott of standing for the national anthem became a national topic of conversation.  Many felt divided on the quarterback’s action, but it got people talking most importantly.  Unfortunately, it seems to have scared teams off as he remains a free agent looking for a team.
