Pittsburgh Steelers star defensive back Ike Taylor hosted his first “Shop with a Jock” event at the Walmart store in West Mifflin, for 50 underprivileged children from MHY Family Services. This private event gave homeless, neglected, at-risk, and abused children from the Pittsburgh area a night of fun filled with food, games and a $100 shopping spree at Walmart with their favorite Steelers football players.
