UWGLA Ambassador Nnamdi Asomugha Pays Visit to HOLA

Yesterday, United Way partner Heart of Los Angeles - which provides free afterschool programs to underserved and at-risk youths - welcomed Philadelphia Eagles Cornerback and UWGLA Team NFL Ambassador Nnamdi Asomugha to its facility for a day of painting, planting and bonding.

The L.A. native's "Day of Service" to the community included a remodeling project in HOLA's Visual Arts Department, a nature lesson in its sustainable garden/outdoor classroom as well as plenty of opportunities for excited young students to snag pictures and autographs.

With the pro athlete serving as United Way's newest celebrity spokesperson and championing its mission to Create Pathways Out of Poverty for the residents of L.A. County, the organization anticipates making even greater strides towards ending homelessness, increasing the high school graduation rate and ensuring the financial stability of local families.
