Texans donate $500,000 to winter storm relief efforts amid Deshaun Watson drama
The Houston Texans have just committed to a $500,000 donation for the victims of the winter storms that have rampaged throughout the state of Texas. This gesture of generosity comes amid the issues the team has been dealing with of late, with none more pressing than the future of star quarterback Deshaun Watson in Houston.
The Texans organization, along with co-founder and senior chair Janice McNair, has heeded the call of those who have been most affected by the adverse weather conditions in Texas. The donation has reportedly been coursed through the Greater Houston/Harris County 2021 Winter Storm Relief Fund.
“We are happy to lend a helping hand to our fellow neighbors during challenging times like these,” Mrs. McNair said in a press release, via Mike Florio of NBC Sports. “I’d like to express my sincere gratitude to Mayor Turner and Judge Hidalgo for their leadership of the relief fund and including us in the recovery efforts. This city is full of strong and resilient people who will benefit greatly from these funds.”
Cal McNair, who currently serves as the Texans’ chairman and CEO, has been named to the Advisory Board of the Greater Houston/Harris County 2021 Winter Storm Relief Fund.
It’s absolutely great to hear how the Texans have gone out of their way to help those who are in dire need. Nevertheless, there’s no denying that the front office remains focused on their biggest challenge at hand — doing everything they can to try and convince Deshaun Watson to remain with the team.
