While the sports world has hit a collective pause, several Dallas Cowboy players have taken this to use their platform and give back to the community.
Last week center, Travis Frederick, announced that through his Blocking Out Hunger Foundation, he and a group of Cowboys teammates and coaches would commit to match up to $40,000 in public donation through a partnership with the Sharing Life Community Outreach.
The mission of the foundation is to provide support for inner-city and low-income children throughout Metro Dallas who struggle with hunger. With the school closures Frederick is helping the families who are struggling to have food for their families that the school would regularly supply.
This past weekend, the "HotBoyz" took their time to step up in a big way in order to both support locally-owned businesses and provide food to first responders and hospital employees who are still working during the global pandemic.
"For the people in need, the people that can't eat. For us to be able to provide that, it's a great thing," Smith said to CBS 11.
On Sunday, Lawrence and Smith provided and served meals from Cousins Maine Lobster, Shiver's Lunch Box and local convenience store Seago Pantry in person to those needing a quick bite before heading back to work.
In addition to providing meals they are also hoping to provide relief to small businesses that still need support. Head to gethotboyz.com to lend your support to more than 70 local business by purchasing gift card packages, and keep track of donations to your community using the Hotboyz Impact Dashboard.
While we don't know when the team will be playing again, it's clear they're still coming together and making the plays the matter right now.
