Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Wednesday, Dec. 16 – for your Seattle Seahawks.

Quandre Diggs Participates In "December To Remember" Event

Quandre Diggs, a six-year NFL veteran, continues to give back to the communities that have impacted him most. Diggs grew up in Angleton, Texas before playing in Detroit with the Lions and Seattle with the Seahawks. This holiday season, he's helping out all three cities.

Partnering with Patriots linebacker Brandon Copeland, Diggs is participating in the "A December to Remember" event. December to Remember involves "20 NFL players teaming up to help families from underserved communities across the country." Overall, the event will serve over 200 families across 18 states.

Diggs will serve families in the three aforementioned cities by donating $800 Amazon gift cards for holiday shopping sprees. He surprised 10 families in Seattle and five families in Detroit, as well as a few extra in Angleton. On Tuesday, Diggs made surprise calls to the families in Seattle and Detroit.

Quandre - Detroit

The Seattle families belong to Community Passageways, a Seattle based non-profit founded in 2017 with a vision for zero youth incarceration. CP supports youths and young adults at every stage of the criminal legal process, with a commitment to replace the school-to-prison pipeline with a school-to-life success pipeline.

In Detroit, the five families belong to the Detroit Justice Center, which works alongside communities to create economic opportunities, transform the justice system and promote equitable and just cities. DJC was founded on the belief that cities that work for everyone cannot be built without remedying the impacts of mass incarceration.
