When the Robbins family bumped into Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder and his wife, Samantha, while out shopping, they had been trying to distract themselves after the family’s mom, Maggie, was recently killed in a car accident.
After learning of their grief, reported WCCO, Ponder treated the family’s two girls to a shopping spree.
"When we walked into the store, the manager came out and he mentioned that they wanted to buy my daughters some clothes that day," father Justin Robbins told WCCO, who learned Ponder was behind the shopping spree only after pressing the manager for details. Robbins said he had limited his daughters to one outfit apiece, despite their desire to buy the whole store.
"We really, really want to thank the Ponders and what a great man. Samantha is a great person and Christian is a great man," Justin added to the station. "It was a great day, it really helped us out. We really appreciate the Ponders for doing that for us."
