Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is ready to get back to work.
The all-pro had a setback of his own with a broken leg, but Watt announced Thursday his plans for distributing $30.15 million of the funds he raised for Hurricane Harvey relief.
The money will primiarily go to four non-profits groups to rebuild homes, child-care centers and help provide food and medical care to victims of the natural disaster. The remainder of the funds, some $7 million, will be put aside for use in 2018.
Excited to share an update on the Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts with you guys. I can’t thank everyone enough for your incredible support and I can’t wait to share more updates with you throughout this process to show you how your incredibly generous donations are helping to rebuild this great city and it’s surrounding areas. The end of the video got cut off but I want to wish the best of luck to the Stros in the World Series and thank you for giving us all a great reason to smile. #HoustonStrong
