The Home Depot recently helped to honor Seahawks cornerback Marcus Trufant as a The Home Depot NFL Neighborhood MVP. He was one of only 17 players selected league-wide for his commitment to giving back to the community. On Tuesday, Marcus worked alongside Home Depot and community volunteers to help build a brand new playground for West Seattle Elementary.

The playground build is part of The Home Depot NFL Neighborhood MVP program that recognizes and celebrates NFL players for their commitment to giving back to their local communities. Trufant was one of 17 players selected league-wide for his work in founding the Trufant Family Foundation that focuses on supporting scholarships, financial aid, children’s centers and family centers. The Home Depot developed the NFL Neighborhood MVP program as part of its ongoing commitment to give back to the communities its associates live and work in.

A new playground will be a great play and learning environment for the students, families and the Seattle community. It will also provide welcome physical, emotional, social and educational development opportunities for area children.
