Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Wednesday, November 2 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Jordyn Brooks Teams With Campbell's Soup To Fight Hunger
Seahawks linebacker Jordyn Brooks used some off-time Tuesday to give back to those in need, visiting the Plymouth Housing complex with Campbell’s Chunky Sacks Hunger Campaign to donate free food.
In September, Campbell's pledged to donate one million meals this NFL season, partnering with star defensive players from 11 franchises. Brooks was chosen to represent Seattle, following a 183-tackle 2021 season, setting a franchise record. Currently, the Texas Tech alum ranks No. 2 overall in tackles (53) as the 5-3 Seahawks hold a three-game win streak. Tuesday, Brooks got to help tackle homelessness and hunger inthe Emerald City.
Seattle's KING 5 was on-hand to capture Brooks in action, as he knocked on doors, hand-delivering bags filled with Campbell's soup. Plymouth Housing fights to prevent homelessness and food-deprivation; a battle Brooks is glad to suit up for.
"It was really cool," said Brooks. "This one lady in particular, it definitely made her day but she made my day. I thought it was pretty cool just to see her reaction, something small or simple just as cans of soup, so that was pretty cool for me"
Brooks took photos with residents adorned in Seahawks apparel, as the charitable act brought the gratitude and emotions out of many in attendance.
"I once was in a similar type of situation to these people," said Brooks. "I can identify with their situation."
Campbell's continues to collaborate with the Seahawks in the pastto tackle hunger, including teaming up with Seahawks Legend Thomas Rawls to donate 2,000 meals to Mary's Place, a nonprofit organization providing shelter and services for women in the Seattle area.
Seahawks linebacker Jordyn Brooks teamed up with Campbell's® Chunky® to help donate 10,000 cans of soup to Plymouth Housing on November 1, 2022 as part of the 'Chunky Sacks Hunger' campaign.
