During a charity event Ware attended Tuesday at a high school in Lancaster, Texas, one of the family members finally got a chance to thank the Cowboys superstar.
“It was overwhelming, just overwhelming,” JoAnn Trevino told George of Ware’s generosity. “I have on pants right now that he bought me.
“He just saw a family in need and a need he was able to take care of. There was nothing in return. There were no news cameras out there. We’re just all lower-middle class, our whole family. Of course we’re going to share what we have, but there is not money to do stuff like that. And DeMarcus Ware doesn’t know who we are. There were no ulterior motives, nothing but out of the kindness of his heart that he did that for us.”
Ware told George that Trevino stopping by to say thanks let him know how important his gesture was to them.
“Sometimes in life you have opportunities to sort of spread your wealth and things aren’t as important to you but they can be very important to somebody else and that’s what is so good about the gift of giving,” Ware said. “It’s not about what you have but the memories you can make with what you’ve got.”
