AIKEN, SC (WFXG) -

Koda’s Kids Foundation held their 9th Annual Football and Cheer Camp Saturday at South Aiken High School. This event was free to kids who brought canned good donations.

Kids ages 7-18 were able to take advantage of this opportunity. San Francisco 49ers linebacker and South Aiken High School Alumnus Dekoda Watson, the founder of the organization says it means everything to him to continue to give back to the kids in his community.

"We’re expanding and one thing that I can say I’m very proud of everybody that has actually contributed or donated or whatever and actually believed in my program and being able to provide for the kids here in my area where I grew up at," Watson said. 

Watson is working on expanding this camp to Florida and California.
