Former Pittsburgh Steeler Troy Polamalu has always been a fan favorite on the field, but now he is making big moves off the field. 

According to a report by the Trib, Troy and his wife donated gift cards to more than 400 furloughed Westmoreland County government workers!

Monday county officials said that Troy donated gift cards to local restaurants to help employees who were temporarily removed from the payroll. 

“The Polamalus found out about Westmoreland County having to make the difficult decision to furlough their employees through the media. The Steelers spend about a month a year in Westmoreland County during training camp in Latrobe. Of course, they feel a connection with Latrobe and Westmoreland County and want to help out our employees and local businesses during this tough time,” Commissioner Gina Cerilli was quoted in the Trib article.

The great thing about this is, not only is the Polamalu family helping the workers, they are also helping the small, local restaurants that they bought the gift cards for! 

What an AWESOME way to give back! 

We forever love you #43!
