The Jacksonville Jaguars are taking their talents off the field to help dozens of Jacksonville families.
Mother of four, Latasha Williams, says the ‘One Team. One Home.’ allowed her to become a first time homeowner.
“I worked hard for this, I didn’t stop. I didn’t give up. I pushed forward through all the things that I’ve endured and the process. I kept going,” said Williams on Wednesday.
Her home is the first of 100 to be built or repaired by the $2 million, 5 year partnership between the team, TIAA Bank, and Habitat for Humanity.
Former Jaguars player Tom McManus explained, “You’re able to have that platform to provide entertainment for people on Sundays. Then off the field you’re able to provide the platform to help people.”
