Lions Star Greg Hall Organizes a "Hoodies for the Homeless" Campaign, Donate your Hoodies Now!

10/27/2018 12:05 AM

 Columbus Lions defensive lineman Greg Hall has certainly made an impact throughout the NAL with his pass rushing ability, terrorizing opposing quarterbacks throughout the 2018 season.  However, Hall is looking to make just as large of an impact off the field, and in the Columbus metropolitan area during the offseason.  The former Auburn Tiger has organized the "Hoodies for the Homeless", a campaign that will make an effort to supply the homeless population in the Columbus area with hoodies and sweatshirts to help stay warm during the upcoming winter months.

 
Hall and the Columbus Lions are calling on all people in the Columbus area to donate their old hoodies that they no longer wear.  There will be 8 different locations around Columbus in which you can drop off your old hoodies, addresses and locations will be given below.  All donations can be made starting on Saturday, October 27th and will be accepted all the way up until Friday, November 9th.  The drive will culminate with members of the Columbus Lions, including Greg Hall himself, greeting and passing out sweatshirts/hoodies to people at the Valley Rescue Mission on Saturday, November 10th, at 6pm EST.
