It was all smiles at three Jacksonville organization Wednesday, after NFL star Will Blackmon hand-delivered 17 recliners to children, the homeless and wounded veterans.


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. --- Three Jacksonville organizations get a special delivery in the form of recliners, from one special NFL star.

Jaguars cornerback, Will Blackmon, along with Ashley Furniture, donated 17 recliners to the Sulzbacher Center, Wounded Warrior Project and the Daniel Kids Foundation.

The chairs were used at EverBank Field for the Jaguars Fan cave. Wednesday, they found permanent homes with Jacksonville organizations.

Blackmon said moments like this inspire him to give back to the community. "It's fun! I enjoy making people smile [and making] people laugh. Whether it's my family or the family of someone else."

Wounded warriors like Andrew Coughlan, who was injured seven years ago in Iraq, get to take the recliners home. He said relaxation is especially key for veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

"It can be as simple as a chair. It can give our warriors the relief they need."
