New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and his wife Brittany have teamed up with Convoy of Hope to help families affected by major flooding in Texas. The couple has donated $50,000 to assist families as they recover. Convoy of Hope has already distributed food, water and other much-needed supplies in Texas communities that flooded.
"Convoy of Hope is an organization committed to helping people who are suffering," says Brees. "As we've done in the past, we're honored to help them reach families who need help."
The gift from the Brees' also enabled Convoy of Hope to send multiple disaster response vehicles into the affected areas including a mobile command center, heavy equipment truck, refrigerated trailer loaded with relief supplies, two debris removal trailers, a debris removal van, a volunteer coordination trailer, equipment trailer and two field utility vehicles.
