Justin Tuck is headed to Alabama to see how he can help the people of his home state rally from the devastating tornadoes of last month. He’s expected to be in his hometown of Kellyton on Thursday to help distribute much-needed amenities such as food, water and clothing and blankets.

He’s also teamed up with JPMorgan Chase to donate $275,000 to the relief efforts. Tuck will donate $25,000 through his charitable organization, R.U.S.H for Literacy.

“I am so grateful that the people of Alabama have always supported me and I know they have the strength to overcome this tragedy,” Tuck said in a press release from JPMorgan Chase. “Education and literacy have always been a passion of mine, so I am partnering with JPMorgan Chase and World Vision to ensure local students get the support they need during this recovery period.”
