Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Some former Saints players were at the State Capitol earlier today showing support for a major charity in our state.
Ex-players including Jack Holmes, Mike Strong and Emanuel Zanders were promoting the partnership between the NFL Players Association and the Louisiana Home Builders Association that's called Touchdown for Homes.
Former NFL players and local home builders plan to construct or renovate homes for local families in need.
"Thank you all for your voluntary efforts and willingness to partner with us and making people's lives a lot better," said Bernard Roberston with the NFLPA – New Orleans.
The Louisiana project of Touchdown for Homes was chosen because of the Super Bowl being held in New Orleans next year.
