Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick shared with fans the generous and kind side of his personality. While his former franchise was playing in the 2020 Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs, Kaepernick was doing constructive things for his community. The former Super Bowl finalist, while not being able to help his former team, was helping the unfortunate off the field.

During Super Bowl Sunday, he visited the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem. Kaepernick spent over an hour with the employees talking and finally touring the building. He also helped in serving meals at the Shelter with some help from the LES Girls Club and Know Your Rights volunteers.

The former Niners QB went over to the SCO Family Shelter in Jamaica, Queens, and teamed up with Eric Reid and 100 Suits for 100 Men. An interesting initiative that enables underprivileged men and women to get business-style clothing for job interviews. Kaepernick was focussing his time and energy on the surrounding community. He was creeping away from football with the possibility of stepping on the field gradually decreasing.
