#WhyWednesday: Brandon Chubb

“I want to give back to my community; I think it’s important with the platform I have to make the difference.”

Carolina Panthers linebacker #41, Brandon Chubb, participated in a NFL Players Association externship with United Way of Greater Atlanta earlier this year. In addition to playing hard on the field, Brandon has a passion for philanthropic leadership. In October 2017, Brandon and his brother, Bradley, started their own nonprofit, the Chubb Foundation. Today, Brandon shared why community involvement matters to him!
