Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee has long been an advocate for the Boys and Girls Clubs in Dallas and Fort Worth, but during the coronavirus pandemic, the NFL star is working overtime for the organization.
Lee is teaming up with Albertsons, Tom Thumb and the Snavely Foundation to provide 50,000 meals for kids at North Texas Boys and Girls Clubs.
"These kids are incredible," Lee said. "They face adversity everyday and they do it so well, but facing hunger is something they shouldn't have to do. Helping the Boys and Girls Club to do that, that's something we wanted to help with and we hope that others will help too."
Monday would have been the first day for Lee and the Cowboys to return to spring practice under new coach Mike McCarthy. Lee, who signed a one-year deal in the offseason, said he is prepared to do what he can to make sure the Cowboys are ready once football is back.
"When the season hits and we have our first game, there's not going to be any excuses about not being ready," Lee said. "We have a lot of veteran leadership and we're going to have to force guys to continue to learn, work and stay connected, and to know that when we're back together, we're going to be ready to go. None of this is going to matter, we're going to be ready to have a great season."
Lee is hoping to have a great season, and doing a great thing for kids in North Texas, hoping to have an additional 10,000 meals donated through his foundation.
