IRVING, Texas – Brandon Carr is lending a helping hand to his hometown of Flint, Michigan, during its water crisis.
This week the Cowboys' veteran cornerback donated $100,000 to create the Carr Cares Fund for Flint and another $10,000 to the Safe Water Safe Homes Fund, according to MLive.com.
Carr grew up in Flint, earning all-conference honors as a senior cornerback and adding four touchdowns as a receiver. He also attended Grand Valley State in Allendale, about two hours from Flint.
In December, Carr was named the Cowboys' nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award which ultimately went to the 49ers' Anquan Boldin.
Carr has been active in the community throughout his NFL career. The Carr Cares Foundation is a non-profit organization that focuses on educational enrichment and physical fitness for youth.
