As the National Football League and its teams celebrate the third annual Hispanic Heritage Month, the New Orleans Saints honored David Gallegos at Monday’s game with the NFL Hispanic Heritage Foundation Leadership Award. The NFL and the Hispanic Heritage Foundation have partnered to recognize the contributions of Hispanic leaders in each NFL market. 

David Gallegos has been very passionate member of the New Orleans community since 1983. After graduating from University of New Orleans, he never left the city. Currently, he is the Program Director at The Advocacy Center of Louisiana. The Advocacy Center offers disabled individuals an opportunity for a voice and representation in the work force in order to help them grow to be self-sufficient. Outside of his career, he is also a board member for multiple nonprofit organizations, and he is an active participant in many Latino-focused communities.

Gallegos said, “This is such an honor to be able to represent the Hispanic community tonight.”

Gallegos was presented with his award during an on-field presentation before kickoff against the Miami Dolphins.

Each award honoree has the choice of any local organization to receive a $2,000 donation. He has chosen to donate his $2,000 award to The Advocacy Center. The center not only serves those with disabilities, but they also serve the elderly and those in nursing homes with legal assistance.

“I love my job,” said Gallegos. “The most rewarding part is truly being able to serve people.”
