The Tuesday before Christmas, Morris was in the locker room at FedEx Field doling out toys with U.S. Marines. The week before that, he was passing out winter coats to children at Macy’s downtown. Then there was the Tuesday before that, and the one before that.
Whether he is giving out toys and coats to children in need or dressing up like Captain America and swooping down on youngsters in the pediatric ward of a local hospital, Morris has used his rookie season with the Redskins to be everywhere in the name of charity.
“Anytime I get an opportunity to give back, I give back,” Morris said in an interview during the Marine toy giveaway. “My heart for giving was shaped by others who gave to my family. I saw how selfless they were. It is not always about receiving, but giving, so every time they have some type of event to give, I am always there.”
