Seahawks defensive end Greg Scruggs hasn’t been able to take the field this season because he’s recovering from knee surgery. But it didn’t stop him from rushing to help a single mother who lost the only money she had to spend on Christmas presents for her four children.
Scruggs says he was watching Q13 Fox news Wednesday night when he saw a story about the woman. She had been shopping at a Woodinville Target with $300 in gift cards given to her by a Duvall church just before Christmas. As she went to check out, she accidentally left them on the counter. Two men walked off with the cards, leaving the woman devastated, says King County Sheriff’s Sgt. Cindi West.
A sheriff’s deputy who responded to the call drove the woman to a nearby gas station and filled her gas tank out of his own pocket, West says.
Scruggs says the minute he saw the story, he knew he had to do something.
“I didn’t even think twice about. I said I’m going to go get her a gift card tomorrow.”
