Texans WR Johnson picks up $17K tab for needy kids
Some speedy children in Houston have received more than $17,000
worth of toys and other Christmas gifts thanks to Texans wide
receiver Andre Johnson.
A dozen at-risk youngsters on Tuesday had 80 seconds to dash
through a toy store and grab what they could – to be paid for by
Johnson. His jersey is No. 80.
Some of the NFL team’s cheerleaders helped the needy children
push shopping baskets that quickly filled with dolls, electronic
toys, iPads and other holiday treats. Each child also received an
entertainment game system.
The tab topped $17,300.
Johnson, who for a seventh year hosted the charity event, says
it’s fun for the children and for him, too.
The Texans on Sunday visit the Colts.
