Bills' George Wilson passionate about community service - USATODAY.com

Bills' George Wilson passionate about community service - USATODAY.com:
"His newly established George Wilson S.A.F.E.T.Y. Foundation (Saving Adolescents from Everyday Trials of Youth) is a commitment of time, money and selflessness.

'Community service is a passion I have,' he says.

His timing could not be better.

A study released this month by the Schott Foundation for Public Education re-emphasized the glaring need for more intervention nationwide on behalf of African-American males, even as economic resources for public schools shrivel.

Worse for Buffalonians, only three school districts in the nation (Cleveland, Detroit and Dade County, Florida) posted lower results for African-American males than the city's 25% public high school graduation rate."

Too bad he works weekends. Maybe can get him out for International Service Day (March 26, 2011).
