Laremy Tunsil has offered to help out Texas and Florida residents struggling during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The Texans starting left tackle posted a video to his social media channels, announcing his plans to commit up to $250,000 towards coronavirus relief. Tunsil plans to donate funds to the Florida Gateway Food Bank in his hometown of Lake City and the Star of Hope Mission in Houston.
Tunsil also offered to pay the bills of families and individuals enduring financial hardships because of recent business closures.
"First and foremost, I hope everybody is staying safe, practicing your social distance and washing hands," Tunsil said in his video. "I want to help in critical times like this. So If you have any necessities such as your light bill, your water bill, your car note, rent, etc., what I'm going to have you guys do is take a picture of that and send it to this email: Laremycares@gmail.com. My team will go through the emails and help in any way that we can.
A huge thank you to the workers out there that are putting their life on the line daily for us. Thank you. Peace, love, prosperity and Go Texans!"
After being traded to the Texans on September 1, Tunsil earned Pro Bowl honors following his 2019 campaign.
