Non-Profit Founder Hails Colin Kaepernick As a ‘Hero’ After He Donates 50 Custom Suits

Free-agent Colin Kaepernick usually makes waves for his monetary donations, but for his newest gift, he’s providing an organization with items to help New Yorkers be successful.

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and his Hot 97 host girlfriend, Nessa, delivered 50 custom-made suits to the Queens, N.Y., nonprofit 100 Suits for 100 Men Saturday, April 29.

The organization, founded in 2011 by Kevin Livingston, aims to give free work clothing to men and women who have been incarcerated, gang members, homeless or domestic violence survivors. The goal is to help the individuals transition back into society by helping them become employed, which reduces recidivism rates. 100 Suits for 100 Men also provides men with free haircuts and women with wig consultations.

Livingston told TMZ Sports Nessa put him in touch with her boyfriend after he did an interview with her radio station.

“He was a great partner,” Livingston said of Kaepernick. “He went above and beyond all expectations to help give these guys a second chance. He’s a hero in my eyes, he’s a hero in the eyes of the guys who are going to be receiving these suits. Colin, you’re the man to me, you’re a hero to the men of South Jamaica Queens.”

Kaepernick’s donation follows his combined $100,000 contributions to Meals on Wheels and Love Army for Somalia in March. The former organization delivers food to the homes of senior citizens, while the latter has raised thousands to help drought-ridden Somalia.
