Atkins Looks to Give Back this Holiday Season

Bengals Geno Atkins runs out on the field during introductions of the "Salute to Service" game.

Geno Atkins and his wife Kristen understand how difficult the holidays can be for those in need, and want to do what they can to make the time a little brighter for deserving families and individuals.

Geno and Kristen are holding their first "Atkins Family Week of Giving" to help ease some of the burden for families and individuals facing a hard time.

From December 10-15, the Atkins family will surprise people with things they need most, which could be anything from gift cards and groceries to furniture and tuition assistance.
