Despite polarizing fans by refusing to stand for the National Anthem, Colin Kaepernick continues on his trek for justice. In his latest endeavor, he decided to help out parolees.
A couple days ago, Kaepernick dropped by a New York City parole office with two large boxes in tow. The boxes contained designer suits, some of which even had Kaepernick’s name sewn onto the label. The donation aids the organization 100 Suits, which gives free business wear to men and women looking for jobs. 100 Suits even provides a free tailor that will help with altering clothing for clients.
“By being able to wear appropriate suits to their interviews, these men and women are better equipped to achieve gainful employment,” 100 Suits states, “which will ultimately help them to transition into mainstream society and live more productive lives.”
The NFL Draft just finished up, but Colin Kaepernick is still a free agent. He opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers before the free agency period in March. Many people believe his outspoken political stances are causing his career to pause. Still, moments like this make it apparent it’s not all negative publicity following him.
