Redskins Deliver Early Holiday Happiness

Posted Dec 3, 2013

On Tuesday, 18 current and former Washington Redskins joined Renaldo Wynn and the Family of Faith Foundation to bring holiday shopping to area children.

On Tuesday, 18 current and former Washington Redskins joined Renaldo Wynn and the Family of Faith Foundation to bring holiday shopping to area children.

It was the 10th annual Adopt A Child Holiday Shopping Spree at Target in Dulles, started by Wynn while he was still playing in Washington.

This year, he was joined by current players Kedric Golston, Darryl Tapp, Adam Gettis, London Fletcher, Sav Rocca, Kai Forbath, Kyle Nelson, Nick Sundberg, Chris Nield, Perry Riley Jr., Kory Lichtensteiger, Will Montgomery, Logan Paulsen, Doug Worthington and Redskins alumni Chris Wilson, Lemar Marshall and Roy Jefferson.

This year's event allowed approximately 75 underserved area children to buy holiday presents for themselves and their families.

The students, coming from all over the Washington metro area, broke off in small groups with players, who provided varying degrees of guidance.

Veteran linebacker London Fletcher has been in the NFL 16 years but made it out to his first Holiday Shopping Spree. Guiding around four prospective buyers, Fletcher had suggestions aplenty.

"I try to give them little ideas," he said with a smile. "The main thing is letting them know how much money they have to work with. That's the big thing."

The kids are given $100 each and encouraged to spend the full amount.

Redskins like Nield were much more entertained byt the shopping process.

"Overall, these kids know what they want, and I want to give them their time to find the right gift," he reasoned. "There's one kid who hasn't spent a dime yet. He's pretty picky, but I would be pretty picky if I had a chance to come in here too.

"One kid bought gaming cards, which I have no problem with because it's quick. One of my kids got a basketball and four bags of candy."

Nield said he had little advice to offer his female shoppers, but with his first daughter due in February, he was taking shopping advice from the kids.

"I need to check in on them and see what I should be doing," he said with a chuckle.

"Overall, it's just a really good experience, man. You give them a chance to pick whatever they want. It's a humbling experience and the smile on a kid's face--that's what really counts."

While the event is bigger than ever for Renaldo and his wife, this year was special for another reason, as Wynn is handing it over to former teammate and current Redskins defensive end Kedric Golston.

"Just to see how much this thing has grown is unbelievable," Wynn told Redskins.comTV. "But as one chapter closes, another chapter opens, and that chapter will continue to open with Kedric and his family."

Golston, who remains close personal friends with Renaldo, has been involved with the event since his arrival in Washington in 2006.

"Like Renaldo said, he birthed this about 10 years ago," Golston said. "For him to entrust something so near and dear to me, it's humbling."
