Redskins Players Share Coats, Memories

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Redskins Charitable Foundation and Redskins players Oshiomogho Atogwe, David Anderson, Terrence Austin, Brandon Banks, DeJon Gomes, Sean Locklear, Darrion Scott, Donte’ Stallworth, Josh Wilson, Dough Worthington, Logan Paulsen and Travon Bellamy went to the Macy’s in downtown D.C. to hand out winter clothes to 300 underserved children from the greater metro area.

This is a big event for the Redskins and Macy’s, but it’s also a hit with the players.  This is a rare opportunity for them to interact with their youngest fans, and provide them with something that they really need:

Upon arrival, the players mingled with the kids, and took a liking to the kids’ balloons.  They instantly gravitated to the balloon booth and got arrows, swords and all manner of Christmas critters:

And then there was Redskins returner Brandon Banks, who got a reindeer balloon hat before helping kids get a Redskins cap and gloves:

Redskins safety Oshiomogho Atogwe showed off his fashionista chic style, by helping find coats for some of the little girls.  If patrolling center field doesn’t work for O.J., I think he has a natural gift for retail:

After a few girls had gotten the Atogwe shopping experience, he spoke with the fine folks at ABC-7 about his gift for stylin’. He had a little help from a satisfied customer:

Having seen Atogwe in action in the community, he’ll be the coolest Dad ever, when that time comes.
