Bob McNair and the Texans are pledging $1,000,000 to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
The United Way of Greater Houston's 'Texans Helping Texans' flood relief fund got a boost from the team's Founder/Chairman/CEO on Monday. The team is in Frisco, Texas, and practiced at the Dallas Cowboys facilities on Monday. They'll do the same on Tuesday.
"These dollars will be put to good use in the relief and recovery efforts," Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said. "We also hope our actions encourage others to do what they can to help their neighbors in need right now."
Shortly after O'Brien announced the McNair contribution, Charlotte Jones Anderson, who is the chair of the NFL Foundation, announced that organization will also donate $1,000,000.
"The toll of this storm is unprecedented and it's been hard to watch as it continues to hit Texas," O'Brien said. "It's tough for our coaches and our players and our ops people and our trainers and everybody that's involved with this organization right now to have to watch it on the news knowing that people are back their suffering."
O'Brien said he and the Texans have been "inspired by the resilience" of the people back home as they deal with the storm.
