Atlanta Falcons defensive lineman Jonathan Babineaux will unveil a computer lab featuring laptops and tablets the nine-year NFL veteran has donated to teens living in a local group home. The children are victims of abuse and neglect, according to a statement from Babineaux’s representatives, and the computer lab is designed to give the children the opportunity to do homework and stay competitive with others their age.
The lab’s big reveal will happen Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. at Turning Point Group Home in Decatur.
“[Babineaux] is adding a computer room for kids who are victims of abuse or neglect as part of his legacy of giving back and paying it forward,” said the release. “The Jonathan Babineaux Computer Lab will serve as a room where the kids can do their homework or vocational training via computers like most kids do now.”
A 2012 NFC South division champion and Falcons team captain, Babineaux defined his off-field legacy by being the first Falcon to donate to 74 charities. He has also hosted a horse-carriage therapy program for students with severe medical disabilities and given some blind children their first NFL live game experience, the release said.
