PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson may be recovering from a core muscle injury but that hasn’t stopped him from staying active in the community. On Tuesday night, Jackson hosted his annual Shop With a Jock event where he gifted 50 children a shopping spree at a Philadelphia-area Walmart.
The kids were from two local nonprofits — Boys & Girls Club and the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Jackson gave each kid a $100 gift card and spent time with the children as they picked out some holiday toys.
The night included cheesesteaks from Pat’s and each child received a special T-shirt to remember the event.
