Elvis Dumervil, a Haitian-American linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens will be in Haiti this weekend. He will get a bit of fun in the sun of course! But he’s going to be there for a special reason: to help build 58 homes with the organization New Story Charity.
Elvis is part of a huge group of Haitian-American NFL players who’ve gone to Haiti this year to participate in, and oversee the building of homes in Haiti—players like Cliff Avril, Pierre Garcon, Giovani Bernard—among others. They’ve donated to the rebuilding effort and want to make sure that the money goes to the intended.
Prior to being a Raven, Dumervil was #92 with the Denver Broncos. Elvis is a Little Haiti baby, so how wonderful to see that he hasn’t forgotten where he came from! And moreover, that he’s going down the trenches to help!
