Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has stepped up to help Dallas at a tough time.

The Dallas nonprofit Our Calling thanked Prescott and actor Matthew McConaughey for donations that bought 1,000 meals for homeless people who are currently staying at the Dallas Convention Center while Texas is battered by record cold temperatures, power outages and unsafe drinking water.

“Opening an emergency weather shelter for nearly 1,000 homeless individuals in Dallas at the Convention Center has been our most difficult task. But we are thankful and encouraged that @McConaughey and @dak are sending support to purchase meals for the individuals and families,” Our Calling wrote on Twitter.

Prescott will be negotiating a long-term contract with the Cowboys in the coming weeks. If the two sides don’t reach an agreement, the Cowboys can keep Prescott by paying him $37.68 million on the franchise tag this year.

  1. can’t wait to see all the morons rip Dak for this kind act, no matter what this man does people still dislike him. He is a good human being, his agent Todd France is the one that is making things difficult for him to sign a contract with the Cowboys.

  2. Great move by Prescott. Where is the the Cowboy organization, the Mavericks, the Stars, the Rangers, the Astros, the Rockets, the Texans and etc?

  3. If one player can do 1k people, an organization could do 5k, maybe 10k. Thats at least 35 to 70k people that could be helped.

  4. I knew Dak was a good person when I watched him get off his seat to run down some trash blowing past him, pick it up and put it in a trash can…. That one moment said a lot about his character

  5. Leadership. Not a drop in the bucket monetarily for Dak but a good gesture to the community.
