WASHINGTON, D.C. – Mike Evans has been named the Week 16 NFLPA Community MVP after he donated more than $30,000 to support Tampa Bay kids in need while also providing four-year college scholarships for six local high school students.
“This is a huge honor,” the Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver said. “With the many blessings I’ve received through football, my wife, Ashli, and I started the Mike Evans Family Foundation to be a blessing to others. We don’t do it for the recognition. It just makes us feel good to give back.”
The Super Bowl champion once again created a special holiday experience for Tampa Bay kids in need through his annual Catch For Christmas initiative. This year, Evans and his foundation gave back more than $30,000 to the youth in his community over the course of a week.
