While scoring touchdowns may be Bills’ wideout Stefon Diggs’ business, helping those in need is his passion.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs is no stranger to making things happen.
From his days as a dual-sport (football and track) high school athlete in Maryland to his electrifying pro-level playing style, Diggs has been quite at home in the spotlight.
He is also typically among the very first in line to lend a helping hand to those in need.
This week, Diggs held the first Back to School Bash at the Tops Supermarket on Jefferson Avenue — the same site of a horrific mass shooting which occurred on May 14. Both he and his teammates had visited the area shortly after the tragedy to honor the victims.
It was at that time when he realized that he wanted to do more to help the grieving community.
Shortly thereafter, Diggs contacted Mayor Byron Brown to help coordinate an event which would benefit children in the Ellicott/Masten School Districts as their students prepare for the new academic year. Thanks to his efforts, 600 students were given new backpacks, gift cards, fresh haircuts, and free internet access through T-Mobile for eligible students and their families.
