I kind of followed Warrick Dunn's charity stuff since it's inception. This is the 115th house he's provided for a family in need.

Source said:
GAINESVILLE - An NFL great known for his generosity surprised a single mother of three in Hall County Friday with a fully stocked home.

Warrick Dunn's Homes for the Holidays organization filled Heather Walls' Ridgemont Trace house with everything needed to operate and more.

Dunn said it never gets old.

"One of the key things she said is that, 'I had one bed.' We supplied her with everything that she needs," Dunn said.

The Gainesville effort is the 115th for Dunn's charity. It includes everything from decorations, furniture and toys to kitchen supplies and toothbrushes. The Dunn organization also grants $5,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Hall County to be used as down-payment assistance.

"When she pulled up she was excited to see me, but I think the joy was when we walked through the home and she got to see everything in the house was hers. I feel like we changed a life," Dunn said.

The house is the ninth build by Habitat High, the school system program that builds houses for Habitat for Humanity.

That's a great story. Dunn's a vanishing breed, unfortunately.

I was a Dunn fan on the Falcons. Seen him interviewed and he's very humble. I'm not surprised he's such a good man. =d>

When he first came into the league in Tampa Bay he said he wanted to build his mom a house because she never had one. Good to know that he is doing this for many others. I always liked him and it's good to hear of a guy who is a success story post-NFL.
