For The Kids: Redskins Spend Monday All Over The DMV

"Look at this guy, man. Helping the community."

Safety Dashon Goldson was talking about his fellow defensive back Duke Ihenacho, sitting out this year on injured/reserve, as he placed turkeys into grocery bags. He may as well have been telling that to a lot of his teammates.

Monday afternoon, he hosted "Goldson's Gobble-Gobble Giveaway," which took place at Suitland High School in District Heights, Md., handing out turkeys and other meals to more than 200 local families in need.

Many of the defensive backs, and linebacker Keenan Robinson, showed up to support their team captain and, naturally, documented their experience on Twitter and Instagram.

Back in Ashburn, specifically at Trailside Middle School, wide receiver Rashad Ross was speaking "knowledge" alongside wide receiver DeSean Jackson, continuing to promote his anti-bullying campaign.

There, Jackson and Ross spoke to kids about their backgrounds and preventing bullying in school and later posed for photos with students, who received Jackson's "No Bullies in the Huddle" book.

Then, over in Woodbridge, Va., quarterback Robert Griffin III, on behalf of his Family Of 3 Foundation, stopped by The House Inc. student leadership center to provide some kids a Thanksgiving dinner.

And finally, on behalf of the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation and the just keep livin' Foundation, running back Alfred Morris and offensive lineman Arie Kouandjio spent their afternoon at Roosevelt High School in northwest Washington, D.C.

The program was made possible from the "Movies With Morris" event in 2014, and both players had the chance to speak for nearly an hour about their backgrounds, their football experience and their advice as the group of students progresses into college.

"I have a great opportunity to help a lot of kids out, especially since this is being where I grew up," Kouandjio said. "But it does feel great to help out."

Look at all of these guys, helping the community.
