Our Heart for Texas
The great state of Texas has always been near and dear to the hearts of The Bennett Foundation and both Michael and Pele Bennett themselves. Michael grew up in Houston, attended Alief Taylor High School where he met his high school sweetheart and future wife Pele, and went on to play college football for Texas A&M in College Station with his brother, Martellus. The Bennett Foundation was able to give back to the city of Houston when tragedy struck last year in the form of a devastating hurricane. With the generous donations from friends, fans, and supporters of The Bennett Foundation, as well as contributions from The Seattle Seahawks, Safeway, Costco, Albertson’s, and Randalls, The Bennett Foundation was able deliver day-to-day necessities like baby diapers, body wash and dish detergent. Hundreds of bottles of water and pounds of food were distributed to families throughout the week, as well as backpacks and other school supplies.
Everything is bigger in Texas, even Michael and Pele’s hearts.
