PHOENIX — Former college football and NFL quarterback Tim Tebow continues to do good works for people in need.
Tebow, 33, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2007 while playing for the University of Florida, visited St. Vincent de Paul and brought 50 pairs of shoes for guests who live at the Phoenix nonprofit shelter, KNXV reported.
During his visit this week, Tebow told St. Vincent de Paul staffers he wanted to visit guests at the shelter and also people on the street, the television station reported.
As Tebow left, he noticed that some of the people at the shelter still did not have shoes. Tebow took off his pair and gave them to a guest, KNXV reported.
Tebow also made a list of people who did not receive a pair of shoes. He later sent all of them shoes, the television station reported.
“If you ask me, or many of our guests, Tim has gone from professional athlete to superhero in just a few years,” Steve Zabilski, CEO of St. Vincent de Paul, told KNXV. “His actions off the field are as impressive as any last-minute touchdown pass, or game-winning home run. I think we all can agree on that.”
