The girls received a tour of the facilities from Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation staff before hearing from numerous members of the Redskins front office including Head Chef Jon Mathieson and members of the Redskins Equipment Team.
One of the ... Read More

WOW sat down with Krissy Green, Founder of the local Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation, to talk about more about their mission to create and send meaningful carepackages to soldiers overseas.
What was your inspiration in starting the DJGMF?
We didn't want to be the grieving family with no outlet for our loss. Creating a foundation in Doug's honor has helped us ensure his legacy lives on. We knew that there's nothing he'd rather us be doing than supporting his brothers and sisters that were by his side while deployed.
