DALLAS – Dak Prescott and Matthew McConaughey in Texan fashion help fellow Texans as their plight continues after this week’s historic winter weather.
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback and Texas actor donated OurCalling to help people at a downtown Dallas thermal center. The non-profit association tweeted on Thursday.
The Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center opened as a warming center earlier this week as temperatures in northern Texas were dangerously low and some areas reached zero or even negative degrees.
The downtown location has helped 1,000 homeless people. OurCalling takes care of the reception and operation around the clock in the convention center.
“We are grateful and encouraged that @McConaughey and @dak are sending support to buy meals for individuals and families.”
Opening an emergency shelter for nearly 1,000 homeless people in Dallas at the Convention Center was our most difficult task. However, we are grateful and encouraged that @McConaughey and @dak are sending out assistance in purchasing meals for individuals and families.
