DeSean Jackson may be celebrating his 27th birthday this week but that has't stopped him from giving back to the community.

Jackson along with Michael Vick, Jon Dorenbos, Kurt Coleman and some other teammates took 50 kids from Youth Services Inc. on a shopping spree Tuesday at Walmart in South Philly.

The Eagles wide receiver posted several pictures on Instagram and Twitter with the youngsters and thanked Walmart, McDonalds and TMobile for helping support the shopping spree.
