MEXIA, Texas Kelvin Beachum was back in Mexia Thursday to donate to the Central Texas Food Bank and receive a big honor from the group.
Beachum was back in his hometown to help the food bank hand out food as part of their monthly distribution in Mexia. Prior to handing out the food, the Central Texas Food Bank named Beachum their Ambassador at Large for all he's done to help them.
The food bank also announced that Beachum is committing $50,000 to Limestone, Freestone, and McLennan counties. If the community matches that number Beachum will double his donation.
Beachum is in his first year with the New York Jets. He played in Jacksonville last year and with the Steelers before that.
