Service + Solidarity Spotlight: NFLPA Names Community MVP for Week 18: Pharaoh Brown

Pharaoh Brown

Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

As Week 18 brings another exciting regular season of the NFL, the NFLPA is recognizing another one of its members who has gone above and beyond to serve his community. Pharaoh Brown, who plays tight end for the Houston Texans, hosted a holiday dinner last month at Covenant House Texas (CHT), where he also donated $4,000 and provided gift cards for each resident. CHT provides sanctuary, programs and services for homeless, abused and abandoned youth, including those who have escaped sex trafficking.

“Being named the NFLPA Community MVP means the world to me,” Brown said. “As a father myself, I know how important it is for communities to look after the well-being of our youth. I’m proud to work alongside wonderful organizations, like Covenant House, that make a real difference within the Houston community.”
