The holidays are all about giving back, and we wanted to share this heartwarming story that was brought to our attention.
Tennessee Titans rookie defensive linemen Larrell Murchison is spreading holiday cheer and stepping up to help those in need.
The North Carolina native and his family are providing new winter coats to children of single-parent households within his hometown community of Elizabethtown. The children will also receive new toys and presents from Murchison to help brighten their holiday season.
As part of his efforts to give back, Murchison is also surprising the senior citizens at Whites Creek Missionary Baptist Church with holiday gift bags.
“Growing up in the small tight-knit community of Elizabethtown, I understand the importance of acknowledging those who helped mold me into the man I am today,” says Murchison.
More significantly, he recognizes the opportunity he has created for others to follow in his footsteps and accomplish their dreams.
Murchison attended high school at East Bladen in his hometown of Elizabethtown. He was also fortunate enough to continue his football career less than two hours away at NC State.
Playing in the NFL is a privilege, and it’s great to see young guys like Murchison already using their platform to benefit the less fortunate. The Titans have always placed an emphasis on adding players to their locker room that truly care about their community, and Murchison fits the mold.
The Murchison family would like to thank Leinwand’s of Elizabethtown for being a fantastic partner in this mission.
