How many people does it take to pull off a miracle? It’s kind of a trick question, since ‘miracles’ usually imply divine intervention but the amazing truth is that many inspired and faithful people are looking to find ways to create daily miracles for those who live near the heart of Ohio. What follows the pictorial update is the original article helping get the word out about the DRIVEN event that took place on December 15th. As you will be able to see, many families were blessed by this event and these three wonderful people are the DRIV(ing)EN force behind it.
“The DRIVEN Food Outreach has just as much impact on me as it does the families in attendance. Giving to others means so much to me! Giving breaks the back of greed!
Playing at Ohio State and in the NFL were some of the best days of my life, but I can honestly say that scoring touchdowns or playing “that team up north” is not even close to as important as it is to help others! Everyone reading this had someone, at some point, that helped them through a tough time. What if that person hadn’t been there? My goal is to make sure that people can ALWAYS count on the DRIVEN Foundation to BE THERE. We will impact the world, starting with Columbus, OHIO. Everybody can be great because ANYBODY can serve!” – Roy Hall
Words cannot come close to expressing the gratitude that I am sure all of those feel that benefited from this event. I can tell you that my 2012 was better because of my involvement with DRIVEN and you can do your part. Please go here, and pick a great cause to help year round. Become a part of the DRIVEN Offensive line, or look at other ways you can help. There’s plenty to do and Roy, Antonio and Josselyn could use all of the help they can get. Big things coming in 2013 and they look forward to your help with them!
As a child I experienced times where my single mother just couldn’t afford to put a nice meal on the table. Goulash and ketchup sandwiches were regulars at times and were welcome meals on days there just wasn’t anything else to eat. All of what I went through as a child pales in comparison to some of the issues the needy around Columbus are faced with. There are families that go days without eating anything. This is your opportunity to help where help is needed. Let the next time your stomach growls remind you that there are people who go days without eating, and you helped do something about it!
Roy Hall and Antonio Smith really started DRIVEN for one purpose – they feel commanded to be a perpetual outreach in a community that needs their help.
