Houston Texans’ defensive lineman J.J. Watt is fulfilling his promise of helping the Houston area after suffering so much devastation from Hurricane Harvey.
Houston Texans’ star J.J. Watt pulled off a miracle during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey as he helped raise $37 million for the Houston area in order to help with relief and recovery efforts.
Watt posted a video on Twitter on Thursday and gave specifics on how the money will be spent to help the people of Houston.
Watt says that the money will go towards rebuilding homes, schools and child care centers. It will also help provide food for those who need it and assist in giving people physical and mental medical services.
In order to make this happen, Watt says he has partnered with four non profit organizations.
The company that will help rebuild the homes is SBP, which helps people rebuild after disasters like Hurricane Harvey.
Save the Children will help Watt rebuild any affected child care centers in the Houston area.
Feeding America is the nonprofit that will assist in feeding people who are going hungry after losing everything from Harvey.
When it comes to the medical services, AmeriCares will take of that aspect of the mission.
Watt went on to thank everyone for their support and that he will post updates on the progress they make over the next year or so.
Even though Hurricane Harvey hit Houston around two months ago, people are still picking up the pieces of their lives. My prayers go out to those affected by the storm.
