Houston Astros infielders Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa, along with their wives, Daniella Correa and Nina Altuve, donated $25,000 per couple to provide meals to families in need amid the recovery from harsh winter conditions that struck Texas recently.
KRIV's Mark Berman provided the full details of the $50,000 donation, which was made in coordination with Kid's Meals Inc. and NACC Disaster Services:
The effects of a winter storm and subsequent freezing temperatures finally started to subside Saturday throughout Texas with conditions expected to reach the 50s and 60s throughout the state after a rare extended cold spell that hampered efforts to restore power and water to people's homes, per CNN's Madeline Holcombe and Ray Sanchez.
President Joe Biden approved Texas' disaster declaration Friday to provide more federal assistance in the recovery effort.
Altuve, who made his major league debut in 2011, and Correa have been teammates in Houston since the latter's arrival to the bigs in 2015. They have formed one of MLB's best middle-infield duos.
Although most of the Astros' players have arrived to Florida for spring training, they've also provided support to fans back in the club's home state.
