The Washington Football Charitable Foundation hosted 200 elementary school students from District of Columbia Public Schools and Prince George's County Public Schools at FedExField for a day filled with holiday fun and lots of surprises! Students received lunch thanks to Paisano's Pizza and were served by Washington Football Team Special Guests in attendance. After lunch, students were divided into small groups where they rotated through four holiday activity stations including face painting, photo booths, cookie decorating, and a locker room surprise where children received personalized gifts.
