Redskins Josh Norman extended his mission to help with the ongoing crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border on Thursday by giving a big donation to a Texas detention center.
The 31-year-old Washington cornerback donated $18,000 to the Humanitarian Respite Center, in McAllen, Texas. An organization run by the Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley.
“I encourage everyone who is watching or paying attention, if you can get out here, do get out here for yourself,” Norman told KGBT, “It’s not something we kid around with. This is people’s lives.”
This is the second time Norman has come to visit the respite center. It’s also reported that he plans to donate his game checks throughout the year.
