Cardinals' Patrick Peterson & Tyrann Mathieu Provide School Supplies to 700 Kids (Photos)

Tyrann Mathieu and Patrick Peterson understand the perils of Louisiana, and took steps to make sure the recent flooding in Baton Rouge didn’t ruin the school year for hundreds of local kids, according to the Arizona Cardinals official website.

With Baton Rouge devastated by recent flooding, Mathieu and Peterson purchased a ton of clothing and school supplies for 700 children in the area, delivered Thursday, by the Boys & Girls Club.

“Me and Pat, we’re really fortunate being in the position that we are in, and obviously we have roots

there,” Mathieu said. “We wanted to help any way we can. We wanted to target the kids. We know a lot of them lost everything in the flood, and we know school had just started, so we really thought about them.”

Mathieu, who is from New Orleans, and Peterson, who hails from Florida, both call Baton Rouge a “second home.”

“I thought it was a no-brainer to give a helping hand,” Peterson said. “There are families of people who are in dire need, who have lost everything. I believe Ty sent back some goods, as far as toothbrushes and toothpaste. I sent back clothing, pillows, whatever the families may need.”

Mathieu said it’s something professional athletes have done in the past, noting New Orleans native Marshall Faulk helping once upon a time.

“They set that standard,” Mathieu said. “We just try to live up to it.”

Kudos to these two brothas!
