Local NFL Star, Emmanuel Moseley Helping 57 Families During Holiday Season
On December 8, two lucky families will go on a $1,000 shopping spree at Wal-Mart, additional families will be given $100 gift cards
GREENSBORO, NC (December 6, 2021) – Local NFL star Emmanuel Moseley wants to spread a little holiday cheer, so The Moseley Legacy Foundation partnered with Wal-Mart, and United Way of Greater Greensboro (UWGG) to give a total of $7,500 in gift cards to help 57 families do some holiday shopping.
On December 8, at 6 p.m., two lucky families will join Emmanuel Moseley virtually, at Wal-Mart Supercenter, 121 West Elmsley Street, in Greensboro to go on a $1,000 holiday shopping spree. Moseley’s mother, Latoya, and father, Darrell, will represent his foundation in person and will also join the families while they shop.
The additional 55 families will be given $100 Wal-Mart gift cards later this month. Families receiving the shopping spree and gift cards were chosen at random from UWGG’s Family Success Centers.
UWGG operates two Family Success Centers, one at Guilford Child Development and one at Salvation Army Center of Hope. These centers offer members the ability to access multiple services like GED completion, career coaching, financial planning, and educational childcare all in one location.
Moseley, a Greensboro native who graduated from James B. Dudley High School, is a cornerback for the San Francisco 49ers. The Moseley Legacy Foundation empowers youth and families in need through food security, educational advancement, and second chance opportunities. The foundation has helped serve over 1,500 families in need since its inception.
“I’m blessed to be able to give back and help those in need. My foundation and I are excited about the opportunity to partner with United Way of Greater Greensboro and share the impact this holiday season,” said Moseley.
END POVERTY: United Way of Greater Greensboro is leading a local movement to END poverty. We create strategic partnerships and initiatives that are coordinated throughout the community that work together to help children, adults, and entire families leave poverty. More than 57,000 people are living in poverty in the greater Greensboro area. In the City of Greensboro, one out of every four children, lives in poverty. With the community’s support, we’re connecting people to supports and services like housing, jobs, education, and healthcare. The federal government defines poverty as a family of four earning $26,500 per year. According to local self-sufficiency standards many four-member households need to earn around $60,000 to meet basic needs without subsidized assistance. www.UnitedWayGSO.org Local impact for 99 years and counting.
