For kids going back to school, one of the most important things is looking good on the first day of class. On Tuesday (9/6), linebacker Ray Lewis made sure kids would not only be prepared for school but also look stylish with their new backpacks.
Alongside teammates linebacker Jameel McClain, running back Ray Rice and wide receiver Torrey Smith, Lewis distributed 200 backpacks filled with school supplies to youth in need at Chuck E. Cheese's (Baltimore, Md.). During the distribution, Lewis and his teammates modeled the different backpack options and gave their stylish opinions on which backpacks each child should choose.
Children who received the backpacks were from multiple organizations including Baltimore City and County Public Schools, Leaders of Tomorrow Youth Center, Woodlawn Community and Ray Lewis' Kids of Character Program.
After receiving their backpacks, children had the opportunity to have fun and play games with the players.
