HOUSTON -- Houston Texans' quarterback Deshaun Watson has partnered with Ashley HomeStore to donate home furnishings to 176 northeast Houston families impacted by Harvey.
The company says the victims’ homes are currently being repaired by Houston Habitat for Humanity.
“Having a home is everything,” Watson says. “Besides calling attention to the work of Habitat for Humanity, I’ll be working with Ashley HomeStore to ensure every family gets the furniture they need.”
Watson was the recipient of a Habitat for Humanity home when he was just 11 years old, when his family lived in a small, cramped apartment in Georgia.
Ashley HomeStore says the furniture will go to families in the neighborhoods of Greensbrook Manor and Harrel Park starting in November.
Each family will get a $3,000 voucher to use toward new furniture. They will also get free accessories like mattresses, artwork, among other items.
The families will go shopping some time in November at a private shopping event held at one of the Ashley HomeStore locations in Houston.
