Nick Hundley Helps Homeless Students

San Diego Padres catcher Nick Hundley is a big believer in one of the most important holiday traditions: giving back. Hundley and his wife recently treated 90 homeless high school students to a holiday shopping spree. 

Via Chat Sports:

For the past three years, Hundley and his wife have hosted the "Shop with a Jock" event at Target with the help of teammates and members of the Junior Seau Foundation. They provide a shopping spree for 90 high school students from Monarch School in San Diego.

... Monarch is a school in San Diego for homeless kids who are choosing to attend in order to better themselves. Hundley shares an interest in these kids with the other Padres players who volunteer their time for the event.

Amazing initiative by the Hundley family and Padres organization.
