Former Bulldogs Support CHRIS Kids at Allstate SEC Good Works Day

A group of former University of Georgia football stars joined representatives from the Southeastern Conference and Allstate Insurance to lend their hands to charity as part of the third annual Allstate SEC Good Works Day in Atlanta on Dec. 1.

Planned in conjunction with Hands on Atlanta, the community service initiative benefitted CHRIS Kids, a local organization that provides safe and stable living environments and offers mental health services for children and families.

A pair of former All-American offensive linemen, brothers Matt and Jon Stinchcomb, teamed with former Bulldog quarterbacks David Greene and D.J. Shockley, defensive lineman Quentin Moses, defensive back Kelin Johnson, and several volunteers from Allstate and the SEC, including SEC Commissioner Mike Slive, to wrap holiday gifts, prepare lunches, paint murals and landscape the grounds at the CHRIS Kids facility on Fayetteville Road.
The Georgia football alumni share a unique bond in that all six players were selected to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team during their college careers for their commitment to service and volunteerism.  Since the national award began in 1992, no conference has had more student athletes named to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team than the SEC.

SEC Commissioner Mike Slive was also on hand at the event and spoke to the volunteers about the SEC and Allstate’s shared commitment to making a difference in the community.

Man, I wish this stuff would get as much attention as some of the other stuff that players do.  Just imagine seeing 1000 tweets about this!

Agree. Proud of those Dawgs! And the folks behind the scenes of All State Good Works do a good job of promoting the event.
