VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Super Bowl champion and Virginia Beach native Derrick Nnadi found a way to make Saturday special for children celebrating Halloween.
The Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle provided treats for children at the Boys and Girls Clubs in Virginia Beach and Kansas City.
"I couldn’t let the kids from the Boys and Girls Club in VB and Greater Kansas City go without celebrating Halloween!" Nnadi said in social media posts on Instagram and Twitter. "Sour Patch Kids and Krispy Kreme thanks for being a part of the celebration. To all the parent, sorry, but I had to hook them up with a bunch of candy! Happy Halloween!"

Nnadi's Halloween gift is just one of many ways the Ocean Lakes High School graduate has given back to the community this year.
Just after the coronavirus pandemic began, he started raising money to combat COVID-19 through his Derrick Nnadi Foundation. In February, he presented KC Pet Project with a check for more than $18,000, the cost of the adoption fee for 109 dogs who were available for adoption before the Super Bowl.
