There has been severe winter weather across the United States, but no region has been hit harder than the state of Texas. More than four million people were without power earlier this week and there have been at least 27 deaths attributed to the storms, which brought snow, wind, ice, and record-low temperatures throughout Texas.

While power is being restored and the weather will warm up significantly by early next week, there are still countless residents in need of clean water, power, and a hot meal.

Two Texas natives who have helped out the local communities in a big way are Seattle Seahawks defensive backs Quandre Diggs and Tre Flowers.

Diggs, Flowers, and their respective girlfriends provided hundreds of meals to families in the Austin-area in partnership with the Pflugerville-based J’s Hibachi food truck, as well as Lonestar Jacks BBQ in Bee Cave.

Bobby Wagner also chipped in, as did current Philadelphia Eagles cornerback and former teammate of Diggs, Darius Slay Jr. It is hard not to get emotional seeing this tweet from one man and his family after all they’ve been through over the past several days.

Former Seahawks cornerback and two-time Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee Pierre Desir also contributed 10,000 meals to a Houston food bank, saying “it was the right thing to do.”

Thanks to all of them and everyone who has helped the people of Texas in what is an ongoing humanitarian crisis. If you want to assist in the recovery, check out this list of organizations.
