Terrelle Pryor has given back to a number of causes during his professional football career.

He paid for his high school football team’s banquet last season and also helped Jeannette deter some of the cost for its championship rings.

The NFL free agent wide receiver and his Terrelle Pryor Family Foundation will host a “Rock and Shop” event for children in the Pittsburgh Boys & Girls Clubs from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight at the Walmart in the Waterworks Shopping Plaza near Fox Chapel.

The event, the foundation said, will include food, shopping and T-shirts for around 200 children.

“Our foundation is dedicated to raising up leaders in our local community,” Pryor said. “I believe that mentoring, developing and investing in our youth is a sure and proven process to prepare our young people for leadership.”

A quarterback who shifted gears to play receiver, Pryor, 29, has played for seven NFL teams in six years, his most recent stint with the New York Jets. He has battled injuries since producing a 1,000-yard receiving season with the Cleveland Browns in 2016.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
