Tebow is expected to speak about his faith and why he believes in supporting the homeless community.
Manatee County region salvation coordinator Major Dwayne Durham said that the community is “blessed to be able to partner with such well known advocates like Tim Tebow.”
The football star-turned sports analyst has a history of charitable work and heads his own nonprofit, the Tim Tebow Foundation.
Tebow previous said, "From a very early age, my parents instilled in me the importance of God's word, the salvation we have in His Son Jesus and the responsibility we have to give back to others.” The family’s mission was always "to bring Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need."
