Bills LB Arthur Moats has been selected as a United Way Worldwide Spokesman. Players’ responsibilities include spreading the word of the United Way’s mission through any means they may have, and encouraging people to volunteer their time to their local communities. Moats will continue to remain involved with the United Way of Buffalo and Erie County throughout the 2013 season to work more throughout the area and inspire others to do the same. To kick off the 2013 United Way campaign, Arthur donated $5,000 to a local Buffalo family yesterday who lost their home in a house fire last month. The donation helped provide new furniture, clothes and everyday necessities to help the rebuilding process.

Moats on the selection: “When you are in position to help people out it definitely means a lot. It goes a long way for people. It could be something as simple as just smiling at somebody that could brighten their day and change the course of their life, so I felt like partnering up with United Way definitely is going to help out a lot. I’ve been through a similar situation. I know people who have had their house burn down. I know how hard it can be on you as a family. We just want to make this transition as smooth as possible. So if me coming in, eating dinner with them and giving them a couple of gifts can help them out and brighten their days up, well then by all means. You could just tell that everyone enjoyed themselves, and the time we spent together was a blessing.” via
