MVP Volunteer DeMarcus Lawrence!

Dallas Cowboys Defensive End DeMarcus Lawrence, Florida State Defensive End Janarius Robinson, friends and family rolled up their sleeves and helped volunteer at the GRACE Community Pantry last week.

“It’s a great organization, and we’re all happy to be a part of this,” DeMarcus said as he helped unload boxes of food for our clients. “I’m glad that my family could be here to help as well, it’s important to us to give back to a community that’s been so good to us.”

Avondale Dealerships in Grapevine helped coordinate the event that was as fun as it was productive. Different types of healthy and delicious foods and goods were stocked, organized, and prepped for those we serve each day.

After the work was done, DeMarcus and Janarius took time to take photos with staff, clients, and fans that noticed him as they drove by…he also signed some footballs and autographs.

DeMarcus has been an integral part of the Cowboys since being drafted out of Boise State in 2014 and has done an amazing job of embedding himself in the community.

“We are so blessed to have DeMarcus and his family here with us today,” said GRACE CEO Shonda Schaefer. “We’re all big fans and it’s great to see how much he enjoys giving back to the community.”

Thank you DeMarcus, Janarius, and everyone else that stopped by the pantry to volunteer!
