Kaepernick served meals at NYC charity on Super Bowl Sunday when his former NFL team 49ers played
While the San Francisco 49ers played the Kansas City Chiefs on Super Bowl Sunday, Colin Kaepernick spent the day donating clothes and serving meals to those in need at a New York City charity. The former 49ers quarterback also toured a library for black culture.
The former 49ers quarterback first stopped in Harlem to tour the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, which is dedicated to the research, preservation and exhibition of materials focused on African American, African Diaspora and African experiences, KTVU reports.
After touring the library for more than an hour, Kaepernick traveled to Jamaica in Queens, New York, where he was pictured serving meals at the SCO Family Shelter.
The embattled football player also attended a pop-up shop at the shelter organized by 100 Suits for 100 Men, which posted about the event on Facebook.
"We had food catered by the Door and they received free suits, Shoes, haircuts and a good vibe DURING Super Bowl! This is what real community love looks like," the group wrote.
Kaepernick is seen in photos and videos picking out a suit for an attendee before addressing a large group of New Yorkers and serving them meals.
The former NFL star was joined by Carolina Panthers' Eric Reid as they posed for several photos with excited fans and attendees.
While Kaepernick was out being charitable, his former team, the San Francisco 49ers, lost the Super Bowl LIV in Miami.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, 24, played an instrumental role in helping his team secure a 31-20 victory over the 49ers in a sensational fourth-quarter.
Kaepernick was the quarterback of the 49ers when they lost the Super Bowl 34-31 to the Baltimore Ravens seven years ago.
In 2016, Kaepernick grabbed national headlines after he took a knee during the national anthem before a preseason game to protest police brutality. The move sparked one of the biggest controversies in the NFL and brought on what appears to be a rather premature end to his football career.
