On Tuesday, Dec. 22, LA Chargers DE and Walter Payton NFL Man of The Year Nominee Isaac Rochell hosted a Christmas dinner drive-thru event with teammate DT Jerry Tillery, providing over 400 holiday meals in-need families in the Santa Ana, Calif. area.
Isaac’s apparel company Local Human spearheaded the initiative, which took place from Noon-4 p.m. PT at 450 W. 4th Street in Santa Ana. This was the fourth of five community give backs as part of Rochell and Local Human’s Five Weeks of Giving this holiday season and made possible by Rochell, Tillery, Local Human, Albertson’s, and the Santa Ana Unified School District (SAUSD). All volunteers followed local and CDC recommended health and safety protocols when preparing and distributing groceries to families.
Over the last several weeks, Isaac and Local Human have also: hosted Christmas tree giveaway on Dec. 11 that provided 150 Los Angeles families with a free tree for the holiday season, distributed free Thanksgiving meals to 450 in-need families from the Santa Ana area alongside teammate and 5x Pro Bowl G Trai Turner, and surprised shoppers at a Von’s Grocery Store in Garden Grove, Calif. by paying for $5,000 worth of groceries for 45 families on Dec. 1, Giving Tuesday. Rochell’s ongoing commitment to service earned him the Chargers’ 2020 nominee for the Walter Payton Man of The Year Award.
Founded in 2020 by Rochell and Trevor Beck, Local Human is a apparel brand with intention founded on the premise of giving back. 100% of proceeds generated by Local Human are inserted back into the community through the Do Good Foundation. Additionally, for every item purchased, Local Human donates a shirt to a local foster center.
