Entering his ninth season in the NFL, ex-Buckeye Malcolm Jenkins is no stranger to helping his teammates on the field. He switched gears Friday in Columbus, Ohio, delivering food and supplies to 800 families in need.
Jenkins founded the Malcolm Jenkins Foundation in 2010 in hopes of providing assistance to underprivileged communities. Within it, there are four different organizations. In his home state of New Jersey, he runs the Next Level Youth Football Camp. In Columbus, there’s the Get Ready Fest and the Complete Athlete Program at Ohio State University.

After beginning his NFL career with the Saints, Jenkins is a part of Project R.E.W.A.R.D.S. in New Orleans, which partners with College Track New Orleans and Holiday Dinner Basket Surprise as an education and mentor organization. Since he currently plays with the Eagles, he coordinates Summer S.T.E.A.M., an educational program with Drexel University and Holiday Dinner Basket Surprise in Philadelphia.
Jenkins has collected 619 combined tackles, 14 interceptions, 11 forced fumbles and 6 touchdowns in his NFL career. With Ohio State, he rang up 196 total tackles, 11 interceptions and 2 touchdowns.
