He's one of the most important players on the Philadelphia Eagles, but he's also an integral part of the Philadelphia community.
Safety Rodney McLeod was named the NFLPA's Community MVP for Week 2 on Friday. McLeod and the Change Our Future Foundation that he started with his wife, Erika, provided 40,000 pounds of fresh food, and voter registration and early-voting information at an event held Monday in the Allegheny West section of Philadelphia. This is the first of several events that McLeod will host this season through the "Everybody Eats Every Month" initiative to help families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier this year, McLeod donated $25,000 to Philabundance.
"I am honored to receive this acknowledgment by the NFLPA and count it a special privilege to be named a Community MVP," McLeod said.
The NFLPA will contribute $10,000 to the Change Our Future Foundation so the McLeods can expand their work in the Philadelphia community.
