NFL Pro Bowl defensive end Mario Williams has given plenty of pain to quarterbacks over his pro career (63.5 lifetime sacks), but now the 27-year old is giving back to the state which he grew up in. That is because Williams has decided to donate a vehicle to a North Carolina family in need.From The Daily News:Sgt. Justin Hunter and his wife Staff Sgt Cherie Hunter, both Marine veterans, will celebrate a random act of kindness today when they travel to Garner to pick up the title and keys a 2009 Ford F-250 pick-up. The Hunters have never met Williams but said they will benefit greatly from his generosity.Their current vehicle, a 1999 Sonoma, recently left Cherie stranded at a rest stop along a highway while she was en route to culinary classes. Cherie is enrolled at the Culinary Art Institute program in Durham.Williams initially contacted the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, which then contacted a nonprofit group called Purple Heart Homes, an organization dedicated to providing housing for disabled veterans. The Hunter family was chosen from a pool of several candidates for the truck donation. This news came slightly after learning that they had been selected by Purple Heart Homes to receive home renovations.What a Christmas season it has been for the Jacksonville family. And Buffalo Bills' Williams has a little something to do with it.Via The Daily News.
