CHICAGO (CBS) — A pregnant mom was in tears of joy Friday as she walked into a transformed home.

The makeover came courtesy in part of Bo Jackson – who of course is remembered both as a running back for the then-Los Angeles Raiders and a left fielder and designated hitter for the Kansas City Royals, White Sox, and California Angels.

The volunteers came over to Harmon’s house while she and her family were away for the day. They gave Harmon and her kids new furniture, a cupboard full of food, and a decorated Christmas tree with presents underneath.
