HOLIDAY GIVING: What Seahawks player Bobby Wagner did in West Seattle today

(WSB photos)

A high-profile visitor but a low-key visit today, when Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner spent some time at Admiral Safeway. He wasn’t there to shop, or to sign autographs … he was there to help pack Thanksgiving meals to be delivered to three tiny-house encampments, including Camp Second Chance in West Seattle.

That’s young helper Amare with Bobby, who gave another gift while he was there – paying for the groceries of everybody who happened to be in the store at the time.

    There was a plumbing issue at Safeway today. Bobby took control and said “ Don’t go freakin’ call Beacon!”.😉

    I was there!  And timed it just right.  I received my groceries free of charge!  I was wondering what wonderful person was giving such a gift.  Thank you Bobby!  Now I will use your example of good deeds by paying it forward.

    When the WSHS kids showed up it was amazing! He did take selfies with those fankids. And during that time he paid it forward by paying for everyones shopping experience. He was code named Angel at the store.

    I already loved this guy….here’s one more reason! Bobby helps his community and asks for nothing in return. Be like Bobby.

    Good News and a positive role model for the WSHS kids on giving back to the community.
