When the going gets rough, hometown heroes shine through, as folks in the Pacific Northwest know well. They don't forget where they came from and they certainly don't leave their communities stranded in a bind during a natural disaster.
Whitehouse, Texas' hometown hero and Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, definitely remembers his people back home. His foundation, the Mahomes Foundation, recently donated around thirty thousand meals to the East Texas Food Bank., as KLTV reports.
Last week during the polar vortex disastrous winter storm, the East Texas Food Bank website had a banner message stating that they were CLOSED because of the winter storm. Many residents in East Texas wondered how people were going to access any of the food bank's surplus, especially since thousands of families all over Texas had no power and no water. (We're not talking about you lucky blokes who used your Tesla's and your truck's generator to keep your food fresh in the fridge and the power on in the house!)
KLTV goes on to mention that the Mahomes Foundation is hosting two food bank events in Patrick Mahomes' hometown region to evenly split the 30,000 meals they are handing out for free to East Texas residents.
There is no word on whether Patrick Mahomes will be present at either of these events, but that's probably not likely to happen since he and his fiance, Brittany, just had a baby (shout outs to the baby girl, Sterling Skye). Brittany has already said y'all ain't getting no pictures of the new baby anytime soon, so don't even ask! LOL.
