    "It's really overwhelming, because there are so many things other people do with their time and things," Ronald Williams said.

    Salvation Army clients got a warm meal, some face time with some of football's elite and a welcome distraction from the challenges of everyday life.

    James said such events are a reminder of all he has to be thankful for.
     
    "We're expecting -- I have a son on the way," he said.

    Ware said it's a reminder of how far he's come.

    "I remember, once upon a time, I went to the Boys and Girls Club or some type of shelter near my house to get some food and to have the opportunity to give back to these people, see them smile today, that's probably what they need," he said.

    The Cowboys and Walmart sponsored the event.
