Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry surprised a Nashville firefighter with $15,000 after he lost his home in a fire earlier this year.
Titans fan and firefighter Jeremy Taylor lost the home that he, his wife and four daughters recently moved into after a large fire destroyed it when they weren’t home, WZTV reports.
After seeing a post on social media, the Titans Pro Bowl running back said he had to step up to help in any way he could.
“I saw the tweet and I was just touched by it, losing a home is such a tragic occurrence,” Henry told WZTV. “Not only did I see the tweet, but I saw that he was a Titans fan and also a first responder. Nashville has been through so much as a community – the tornado, the pandemic going on, and then the Christmas bombing. I just wanted to be able to help someone in need and someone who has been helping everyone else throughout this pandemic.
Taylor said he’s grateful and very “overwhelmed.”
“It’s definitely been a blessing to my family,” Taylor said. “I really appreciate it. I don’t even know what to say.”
Two All donated $10,000 to the family, while Campbell’s donated $5,000, WZTV reports.
