Former QB Vick makes donation for victims families

4/18/2007 - Michael Vick

ATLANTA -- Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has
teamed up with the United Way to donate $10,000 to assist families
affected by the massacre at Virginia Tech, his former school.

"When tragic things like this happen, families have enough to
deal with, and if I can help in some small way, that's the least I
can do," said Vick, who played for the Hokies before being drafted
No. 1 overall by the Falcons in 2001.

The Vick Foundation is collecting donations from local
communities in both Atlanta and Virginia that will be placed in the
United In Caring Fund for Victims of the VA Tech Tragedy and the
special fund at the United Way of Montgomery, Radford and Floyd
counties, which serves the Virginia Tech area.

Vick's foundation said the money will be used to provide help
with funeral expenses, transportation for family members and other
support services.
