A group of Boise State fans is getting the school’s football program back on track with a series of small acts of kindness.
The campaign, which started with a Facebook post by a former student, has since been spreading on social media.
The post shows Boise State players walking through a neighborhood to give donations to homeless people.
It’s been shared more than 10,000 times.
“It was just something I did on a whim and just thought it would be a fun thing to do,” a Boise State alum who identifies as an NFL player said in an interview with The Associated Press.
“I think we should do something like that more often.”
The student who made the post, who was unable to be identified for fear of retribution, said the group of fans went through a community center after a game to make the donation.
He said they also took a picture with the money, which he said was about $5.
“We’re doing it out of kindness because the kids that have been impacted the most are homeless,” he said.
The donations are intended to help homeless people in the Boise area.
The group said the money was used to purchase food for homeless people at a local restaurant.
They said they plan to use it to help out homeless families.
Boise State athletic director Dave Hart told the AP that the group has been helping homeless people across the state since it started.
He said the program has expanded to cover Boise and its surrounding areas.
Boone State athletic programs have received donations of $50,000 to $100,000 in the past year.
In 2014, the school received $20,000 from the NFL.
