Former San Diego Charger and Carver High School graduate Chris Hairston spoke with kids at Perkins K-8 school in San Diego about the importance of education and life principles.  He also donated 100 pairs of new sneakers to the children in need.

“I decided to do this because I heard about this school from a friend that they had a group of good kids that may need some support,” Hairston said.  “I wanted to do something special by giving a 100 pair of sneakers to the kids that needed them and to also come and share my story.”

The students were able to ask Hairston questions and he signed autographs for all in attendance.  Hairston also plans on doing something similar in the city of Winston-Salem during the summer along with other events.  He says he also wants to elevate the football camp he provides to the kids of the city.

“I was raised to give, to be a helping hand to others. I want to be a role model to the kids no matter the location. If it’s in Winston or in California, I want to be apart of my community.”

The children in attendance were in the third through fifth grades.

Hairston plans to have a farewell tour in the San Diego area to show his appreciation to the fans for their great support throughout the years.  Hairston will join the Los Angeles Rams next season.  He says to be on the lookout for what he has in store for the city of Winston-Salem during the offseason.
