HOUSTON -- Houston Texans' quarterback Deshaun Watson has partnered with Ashley HomeStore to donate home furnishings to 176 northeast Houston families impacted by Harvey.
The company says the victims’ homes are currently being repaired by Houston Habitat for Humanity.
Next week the quarterback will meet with the families and assess their needs and discuss the process for securing their furniture along with the help of Ashley.
“Having a home is everything,” Watson says. “Besides calling attention to the work of Habitat for Humanity, I’ll be working with Ashley HomeStore to ensure every family gets the furniture they need.”
Watson was the recipient of a Habitat for Humanity home when he was just 11 years old, when his family lived in a small, cramped apartment in Georgia.
Ashley HomeStore says the furniture will go to families in the neighborhoods of Greensbrook Manor and Harrel Park starting in November.
