Adrian Peterson Brings Holiday Cheer To Boys & Girls Club

December 15, 2010

Adrian Peterson is making a few more holiday wishes come true this year. Peterson along with teammates Greg Lewis, Eric Frampton, Ryan Cook, and Kenny Onatolu hosted youth from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Twin Cities at the Eden Prairie Sports Authority on Tuesday evening.

The Vikings’ players took part in the “Shop with a Viking” program, which gave each youngster a $200 gift card for a holiday shopping spree courtesy of Sports Authority. The players helped the kids sort through the latest shoes, jerseys, and athletic gear and then stuck around to enjoy a post-shopping dinner.

The event was originally scheduled to run from 6:30-7:30, but the players stayed and relaxed with the youth for over an hour later. In a year of turmoil for the Vikings on the field, it’s nice to see Adrian Peterson and his fellow teammates giving back to the community off the field.
