Moore Holds Event for Children in Newark

Brandon Moore had a fun day planned yesterday for children in the Newark area and talked a little with the Star-Ledger about the event and why he and his wife held and planned it.

“She wanted to have this fun day with the kids,” Moore said. “These kids are in a tough environment. A lot of times they have to make adult decisions at a very young age. Who they’re hanging with. Whether to do this or do that. Things that adults usually deal with. …

“To have one day to have the freedom to just get cotton candy, popcorn, games, which normal kids get to do. If you can give them one day around Christmas time, I think that’s their lasting memory or present you can give them.”

Moore held the event in Newark, in part, because it reminded him of his hometown of Gary, Ind. — a tough city where he could make a difference.

It’s always good to hear about stories like this to put life into perspective.  Glad that Brandon Moore and many of the Jets players could attend this wonderful charity event.
