Josh Norman and fellow NFL star Demario Davis are chronicled by The Washington Post for their efforts to provide relief to children and families at the border.
“Together they patrolled the aisles, grabbing item after item and placing them in cart after cart. The time — 3 a.m. Central — was of no concern to Josh Norman as he gathered as many toys as he could possibly fit in both arms.
The mission was clear. Fatigue and thoughts of football would have to wait.
The Washington Redskins cornerback and New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis made a trip to a San Antonio Walmart to purchase toys, book bags and other items that they personally handed out on Tuesday to immigrant children who were separated at the border from their parents and later released from family detention centers.”
The NFL players teamed up with Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), a nonprofit agency that provides free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families and refugees in Texas.
