MAHOMES KEEPS HOMETOWN TIES ALIVE: East Texas NFL star to donate shoes to alma mater

Top Stories

Former Whitehouse legend and current Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is giving back to his hometown.

Thursday morning, Mahomes’ brother will visit Whitehouse ISD to donate shoes to their athletes.

This is a part of his 15 and the Mahomies Foundation which he founded back in the beginning of April.

But this is not the first time Mahomes has given back to his alma mater. Back in 2017, the NFL star sent brand new Adidas cleats just like the ones he wears on Sundays, to every single player on the team.

The organization will serve “kids from either under-served communities that don’t get the same opportunities I had whenever I was young, or kids that are in the hospital that have chronic illnesses or have suffered major injuries, because those kids are the ones that have trained harder than me by 100 times every single day,” Mahomes said on Jimmy Fallon’s late-night show on NBC.

The organization’s Twitter page says that it supports “initiatives that focus on health, wellness & communities in need of resources.”
