It all started with a simple tweet on Thursday afternoon.

It’s no secret the state of Texas has been facing a major crisis this week, with many residents without heat and clean water as a result of a severe winter storm that knocked out much of the state’s power grid.

Seattle Seahawks defensive back Quandre Diggs, a Texas native, tweeted the following:

“Abby and I have contributed 120 plates of chicken fried rice meals from J’s Hibachi for those in need tomorrow between ‘4pm-6pm’ first come first serve!! y’all stay warm + safe!”

Diggs, and his girlfriend Abby, followed up with yet another location Texans could pick up a couple of meals for their families in need.

“Quandre and I have contributed 55 plates of 2 meat, 2 side BBQ plates from @lonestarjacksfor those in need tomorrow first come first serve!! y’all stay warm + safe! Limited 2 plates per family! Address is 3620 Ranch Road 620 S Bee Cave, Texas.”

Soon, other Seahawks, including cornerback Tre Flowers and linebacker Bobby Wagner, were offering to match Diggs’ donations.
