DW4 is making positive plays on and off the gridiron.
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has launched the 'Deshaun Watson Foundation' which is a non-profit organization to support education, health, housing, and other charitable causes for families and youth in underserved communities.
“I am humbled and honored that I have the opportunity to make a difference and positively impact children and families in need through the Deshaun Watson Foundation,” Watson said in a statement. “I would not be where I am today without the help from others. Now it’s my turn to step in and make a difference through the Foundation.”
Great move by Watson using his platform to help people and communities in need.
Watson's first charitable event will be Tuesday, October 29 as the foundation will host the 'The Great Houston Halloween Bash' in Houston.
“Houston is Reliant’s hometown, which is why we couldn’t be more excited to team up with Deshaun Watson to help make a difference for local communities in need,” said Elizabeth Killinger, president of Reliant. “Deshaun is a power player for our city – on and off the field – and we look forward to supporting his first event, The Great Houston Halloween Bash, presented by Reliant.”
