Panthers teammates Steve Smith and DeAngelo Williams are working with Samaritan’s Feet with the goal to provide shoes and socks to 10 million children. Smith and Williams were recently in Memphis, Tennessee to wash the feet of 500 children and give them shoes and socks.
Smith is the NFL ambassador to Samaritan’s Feet and has events planned for Los Angeles, Peru and his planning a trip to Jerusalem. This was Williams first appearance for the organization and it made a big impact.
“The most rewarding part of this is seeing the smile on the kids’ faces after you have a conversation with them,” Williams told the Commercial Appeal. “It feels wonderful to have the opportunity to reach into someone’s life and help them with something they might not get at home.”
