PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Former Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier has brought two deserving families to life this holiday season.
Shazier has teamed up with JCPenney to give the families a chance to go shopping. Both families are affected by a spinal cord injury.
Shazier understands these families’ struggles and wanted to ease the financial burden.
“With a spinal cord injury, you always feel isolated and lonely,” Shazier said. “We wanted to allow them to come in and relax with some shopping to remember what it’s like to enjoy Christmas again.”
Each family received a $ 2,500 gift card to spend at the JCPenney on Ross Park Mall.
