The Wayne General Simmons Foundation and Black Hammer’s 1st Annual Feeding the Needy Easter event
The Black Hammer organization is partnering with the Wayne General Simmons Foundation
For the 1st Annual Feeding The Needy Easter event. The event will take place on Easter Sunday (April 21, 2019) at a local park in Savannah, GA.
The Wayne G Simmons foundation was founded and is currently run by his mother, Ms. Dorothy Simmons. The WGSF was created in memory of her son, Wayne General Simmons
Wayne was drafted by the Green Bay Packers with the 15th pick of the first round of the 1993 NFL Draft. He played for Green Bay for four and a half years, earning a Super Bowl ring at the end of the 1996 season.. Wayne died in a single car crash in 2002.
Ms. Simmons spoke about being homeless with her children at one point in her life. She expressed how loving and caring Wayne was as a person–how much he cared for others. Feeding the Needy was the best way she could think of to honor his memory. Ms. Dorothy stated that she feels as though Wayne has been forgotten. She would like to make sure his legacy is remembered and is one of Love.
