NFL Player Donates First Game Check to Stadium Cafeteria Workers – The Good News [VIDEO]
The Houston Texans posted the video to their Twitter with the caption, "If you can, you must."
The quarterback for the Texans, Deshaun Watson, stopped by the cafeteria at NRG Stadium yesterday (where the team plays their home games). But it wasn't to grab some grub - it was to give back. He was captured on video, giving three envelopes with bows on them to the workers. He donated his first game check - worth $27,353 - after seeing the damage that they suffered from Hurricane Harvey. "For what you all do for us every day and never complain, I really appreciate you all, so I wanted to give my first game check to y'all to help y'all out in some type of way," Watson said in the video. "Here you guys go." Watson was helped by
Habitat for Humanity when he was 11-years-old - his mother applied for a home from them to give her and her kids a stable living situation. Ironically, it was funded by a player from the Atlanta Falcons. He's volunteered with the organization in the past. From the video below, you can see that this has always stuck with him.
