Vikings players have been stepping up in the community after the tragic murder of George Floyd.
A number of players came together on Friday to help distribute water, food, and other essential goods.
Kyle Rudolph helped to organize the event, which saw more than 100 people lined up. In addition to helping to hand out items, the players interacted and listened to members of the community in an effort that defensive end Danielle Hunter hopes is going to filter throughout the area.
“A lot of people watch us and are influenced by what we do, so it’s just coming out and making a difference, being a difference and restoring the community,” Hunter said. “That will influence the younger ones for when they grow up. They’ll have the same change of heart, ‘If something happens, I can be the one to change it. It can start with me.’”
Wide receiver Adam Thielen, center Garrett Bradbury, offensive lineman Aviante Collins, offensive lineman Dakota Dozier, wide receiver Chad Beebe, linebacker Cameron Smith, quarterback Jake Browning and wide receivers coach Andrew Janocko were also part of the group helping out on Friday.
