This was a very busy but exciting week for the Shermans! Coming off of a great Seahawks victory on Sunday, we were fortunate enough to provide school supplies and clothes to children in the Seattle community. The past Tuesday, September 17th, Richard’s and our foundation “Blanket Coverage” had the event at Federal Way’s Commons Mall. The hours seem to fly by like minutes - Richard interacted with fans, the media and most importantly, the children. These rock stars ranged from inner-city youth to children in foster care.
Giving back to the community is something that our family has always believed in. Our family was humbled that so many people came out to support the foundation. To all of the volunteers - we can’t thank you enough. If it weren’t for all of you, we could not have reached all the children that we did. We are very fortunate to be surrounded by such great fans in Seattle and I am proud that Blanket Coverage had the chance to give back. Special thank you to Carlos Becerra for donating a significant amount to the foundation.
As always, I am very excited for another week of Seahawk’s football. It would be great capping off this week with victory #3! Richard is very up-beat and excited for this game as usual. I am looking forward to the game and watching the Seahawks and the Jaguars battle it out!

"From the bottom of my heart, I can’t thank the volunteers that showed up tonight to support mine and my family’s charity enough. To the 125 kids that received school clothes and school supplies this evening please remember this was not a donation, it was an investment in you as a person. Know that your mentors believe in you and so do I."
