Colin Kaepernick spent Super Bowl Sunday helping those in need, instead of watching his former team lose.

According to TMZ, the former NFL star went to Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem. He spent over an hour getting a tour of the building and spending time with the employees.

After his tour, he went to the SCO Family Shelter in Queens, New York where he and Eric Reid teamed up with 100 Suits for 100 Men. In video obtained by TMZ, you can see Kaepernick personally help men in the shelter get fitted for suits. 100 Suits for 100 Men is a non-profit organization designed to help men and women who are less fortunate get business attire to help them land jobs.

After getting some men fitted for suits, Kaep helped to serve meals at the shelter with volunteers from his Know Your Rights organization.

Kaepernick’s former team, the San Francisco 49ers, lost the Super Bowl to the Kansas City Chiefs. Kaepernick began kneeling during the National Anthem to bring awareness to police brutality and racial inequality in America. After he opted out of his contract after his 2016 season, he was never picked up by another NFL team. Many people believe that he was blackballed due to his protest.

Last November, the NFL invited Kaepernick to work out in front of multiple teams.

After thanking the media for attending the workout, Kaepernick said, “I’ve been ready for three years. I’ve been denied for three years. We all know why I came out here today and showed it in front of everybody. We have nothing to hide. So we’re waiting for the 32 owners, the 32 teams, Roger Goodell, all of them to stop running, stop running from the truth, stop running from the people. Around here, we’re ready to play, we’re ready to go anywhere, my agent Jeff Nalley is ready to talk to any team. I’ll interview with any team at any time.”

“We’ll be waiting to hear from Roger Goodell, the NFL, 32 teams. We’ll let you know if we hear from them,” he added. “The ball’s in their court.”

Kaepernick is still a free agent.
