Featuring Warrick Dunn
In addition to his impressive football accomplishments, Warrick is perhaps best known for his involvement in philanthropy. As a rookie for Tampa Bay, Warrick founded Homes for the Holidays to fulfill his mother’s dream of home ownership for single parent families. Warrick’s mother, Betty Smothers, worked tirelessly as a police officer, until she was ambushed and killed while escorting a businesswoman to make a night deposit. Warrick was only 18 years old.
The program partners with local organizations to turn houses into homes for single parent families through home furnishings and down-payment assistance. Since its inception, Homes for the Holidays has furnished 169 homes, provided over $800,000 in down-payment assistance, and served over 457 single parents and children.
The impact of Homes for the Holidays inspired Warrick to expand into three additional programs: Count on Your Future, Sculpt, and Hearts for Community Service Scholarships, all housed today under the Warrick Dunn Charities umbrella. Together, the four programs are dedicated to strengthening and transforming communities by combating poverty, hunger, and improving the quality of lives for families academically, socially, and economically.
