In a video shared by his foundation, the talented running back informed the families, and it will melt your heart. Give it a watch below.
During the Christmas season, it’s always important to give back if you can afford to. Even if you don’t have the financial resources, find a way to give back with your time by volunteering.
The world needs more people helping others, and McCaffrey went out of his way to help others by paying off the layaway accounts of 363 military families.
The Thielen Foundation announced a special holiday donation of $375,000 to be shared between 11 different Minnesota-based non-profit organizations.

The holidays are always a tough time for a lot of people, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. While you might not see it on a daily basis, a lot of people are struggling.
Every little bit can help, and I can’t encourage you all enough to help where you can.
Merry Christmas! For the past 15 years, my family and a group of volunteers have served Christmas meals to multiple different towns.
I look forward to another Christmas of helping others and then a couple light beers in the afternoon with the family.
Spread some joy!
