The 2017 football season marked Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson’s first time playing professional football. So what did he do with that first check? Watson, 22, donated his big league bucks to victims of Hurricane Harvey.

He gave a total of $27,353 to three cafeteria workers at the NRG Stadium in Houston. The rookie came into the cafeteria where the women worked to deliver the envelopes sealed with red ribbon. The ladies lost their cars and homes as a result of Harvey.

“For what you all do for us every day and never complain, I really appreciate you all, so I wanted to give my first game check to y’all to help y’all out in some type of way,” Watson told the workers who serve meals to the team prior to game time.

“Hopefully, that gets you guys back on your feet, and anything you all need, I’m always here to help,” he told them.
