Patrick Mahomes is a beloved hero in his Whitehouse hometown in Texas, thanks to his incredible generosity and his towering NFL superstar status.
In particular, the East Texas Food Bank appreciates what Patrick Mahomes and his 15 and the Mahomies Foundation have done to alleviate hunger in the region following the pandemic and the winter storm.
Dennis Cullinane, the chief executive officer of the East Texas Food Bank, thanked the foundation for their continued support of their relief work.
In a statement, he said:
"I was personally touched that even as Patrick became a new father last week, he was still thinking about his hometown and wanted to help those that have been affected by the winter storm."
The NFL star has recently welcomed a baby girl into the world with his fiancée. However, he has managed to spare a thought for those still struggling in his community by offering them meals through his foundation.
The winter storm has left many people without power and water, and that number includes many vulnerable people who are now grappling with hunger.
That is why the community is so grateful for what friendly neighbors like Mahomes, the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, are doing to help out.
After the donation, East Texas Food Bank will have an easier time addressing the increased need for food aid in the area due to the ongoing pandemic and the devastation that came with the recent winter storm.
This goes to prove that Mahomes is still making a significant impact off the field. His charity, 15 and the Mahomes Foundation, puts its focus on children's health and wellness.
The organization announced its decision to offer the much-needed help after the double tragedies that have left his Whitehouse hometown in Texas seriously devastated.
The East Texas Food Bank sets food distribution events to help residents need help get the meals they require. They greatly rely on meals from well-wishers, and these include individuals and charity organizations.
