Jags: Jones-Drew Gives Back

On Tuesday, August 16th, Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will stay late after practice and meet with over 300 children at Everbank Field. As if pictures and autographs aren’t enough, he will be distributing Reebok backpacks filled with notebooks, pens, pencils and other school related items. The event is made possible by the Maurice Jones-Drew Foundation, which was established in 2009 to assist youth organizations. This is the 3rd year Jones-Drew will be hosting a backpack giveaway and he seems to always jump at the opportunity to give back.

“Whether it’s providing a hot meal or just shaking a hand, I try to do everything possible to put a smile on a child’s face.”
