Green keeps promise to make down payment for single mom
Monday, July 23, 2007
A single mom's dream of home ownership is coming true -- thanks to Ahman Green and the Houston Texans.
Green today made good on a promise to make the down payment on a home for a single parent -- in exchange for reclaiming his Number 30 from teammate Jason Simmons.
Green signed as free agent with the Texans after playing in Green Bay since 2000.
It's all great home news for soon-to-be-homeowner Regina Foster, whose 7-year-old son is autistic.
Foster received a check for $50,000 -- with Green donating 25,000, and Texans owner Bob McNair contributing the rest.
Foster, who works for a mortgage company, was chosen from five finalists who met strict criteria that included a pledge to do 100 hours of community service.
She also must contribute at least $1,500 toward the down payment.
