Chris Draft an MLK ambassador

Posted by Chris Brown on January 14, 2010 – 4:24 pm

Bills LB Chris Draft will be on local radio and TV on Friday in Buffalo as he will be serving as an Ambassador of Service for Martin Luther King day.

The Corporation for National and Community Service, the federal agency that leads the service initiative, tapped key individuals across various sectors to promote the MLK Day to a broad audience and encourage more Americans to do their part to help realize Dr. King’s dream. Many Ambassadors will mark the King Holiday by volunteering in local service projects.

Draft hosted 200 Buffalo Public school students last week for a special viewing of the movie the Blind Side which was followed by an open forum for discussion on character. He’s also participating in a special project with Big Brothers and Big Sisters in Buffalo.

Draft will appear on Kiss 98.5 FM at 7:15 am Friday and later on AM Buffalo on Channel 7 at 9:45 am to speak about the initiative as well as some of his community service projects. He is the only active professional athlete to be named an ambassador of service.
