Lewis helps make holidays brighter

Lewis_B1Cornerback Keenan Lewis kicked off the holiday season by hosting his “Teen Days of Christmas” on Tuesday, bringing joy to teens that could use a lift this time of year.

Lewis teamed with KidsVoice, an organization that provides full-service advocacy for abused, abandoned, voiceless and vulnerable children, to make the holiday season brighter for 23 area teens.

“It’s important to give back to the kids and give them the opportunity to enjoy Christmas,” said Lewis. “That is the big thing. Some people are less fortunate and aren’t able to enjoy Christmas as much. If it puts smiles on their faces, it’s a blessing.”

The event definitely put smiles on the faces of the teens, who joined Lewis at Games N’ At on Pittsburgh’s South Side for dinner. Lewis also gave each of them a movie gift card and gift bag with a football and Steelers’ shirt, courtesy of Lewis and Dick’s Sporting Goods.  

“When you have the opportunity you give thanks to God to be able to share with others,” said Lewis. “It makes me happy and I’ll never forget where I came from. It makes me appreciative.”
