Charity Stripe: Chris Long Setting Up Charlottesville Scholarships
Eagles DE Chris Long will "donate his first six game checks of the season to fund a pair of seven-year scholarships to middle school students in his hometown of Charlottesville." The scholarships will be administered by Long's alma mater, St. Anne's-Belfield School. Long in a statement said that the "white supremacy marches that were held in Charlottesville" this summer are what "spurred him and his wife Megan to set up the scholarships" (PHILLY.com, 9/19).
Canadians LW Jonathan Drouin today is "expected to announce a long-term financial commitment" to Montreal's CHUM hospital, "one of the largest hospitals in North America" (MONTREAL GAZETTE, 9/19).
Kahwa Coffee is collaborating with Rays 3B Evan Longoria on a new blend titled Signature Series No. 3, a nod to Longoria's number. Proceeds will benefit charities and causes including Hurricane Irma relief in Florida (Kahwa Coffee).
