Tre’Davious White 2021 season is over after he found out he tore his ACL at the Thanksgiving game against the New Orleans Saints. Great things have happened since the Buffalo Bills cornerback went down and it’s all thanks to the fan base.
Lara McKee, VP of The Mafia Babes, and her team started a social media campaign to get $27, White’s jersey number, donations for a food bank in his hometown of Shreveport.
Fans have donated more than $100,000.
White couldn’t be more grateful:
“I am at a loss for words for what the Bills Mafia has done for me and my hometown. It truly means the world to me to have my fans support me in this way, by giving back to my community.”
Martha Marak, executive director of the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana, added: “We appreciate Tre’Davious White’s generosity and all he gives back to our community. We are so honored to have the support from the Bills Mafia Babes. These donations come at a time when food insecurity for our neighbors is high and our food inventory is low.
“With the Food Bank’s resources, we will turn every $1 donated into $10 in food value and every $27 that is donated allows us to provide food for 100 meals. As it stands currently, the donations will provide $1,083,590 worth of food value – a number we are so grateful for. We look forward to continuing the fight to end hunger together.”
White was drafted in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
White ranked second of the team with six passes defensed. He also has 41 tackles one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery for the 2021 season.
He will be greatly missed on the field.
