Today Greg Street received a big gift from a big guy with an even bigger heart. Grady Jarrett, defensive tackle for the Atlanta Falcons and the team's 2018 Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee was given $50,000 by the NFL to donate to the charitable organization of his choice. For his gift, he split the amount in half and gave Greg Street's We Need 2 Read program a $25,000 gift.
"I support so much of what you do and the grind you put in on the daily to make impacts in kids' lives, and I respect it so much," Jarrett said to Greg during a live broadcast. "It aligns with our goals. And also, on another hand, you were one of my very first big supporters, and I really appreciate the love you showed me and my camp early on. This is God's way of putting us back together."
The other $25,000 check went to YSportz, another local organization that puts together celebrity sports camps for youth.
V-103 sends a big shout-out to Grady Jarrett, YSportz, and of course our own DJ Greg Street and his We Need 2 Read program!
