Damar Hamlin’s charity gives school supplies to local kids

MCKEES ROCKS, Pa. — Damar Hamlin helped some local kids get ready to head back to school after the Buffalo Bills played against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Acrisure Stadium.

Hamlin’s foundation, Chasing M’s, held a giveaway Sunday afternoon in McKees Rocks.

Nina, Damar’s mother, coordinated the event at the community resource center. It ran from noon to 4 p.m.

Kids who visited got backpacks, school supplies and free haircuts.

The event was a partnership led by an organization called Recession Proof, PA Chapter and included the Chasing M’s Foundation, Focus on Renewal, the McKees Rocks VFW and the Allegheny County Housing Authority, with a special thanks to Chase Bank McKees Rocks and Knights Barbershop, which donated their time to give the kids free haircuts.
