Former New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister teamed up with the Saints and Rouses Markets to deliver over 38,000 bottles of water to help provide relief from Jackson, Mississippi’s ongoing water crisis that resulted from heavy rains and flooding in August. The damage impacted the area’s water treatment plant and over 150,000 residents no longer have safe drinking water. The area has been under a boil advisory for weeks with no end in sight.

A second truckload of water will be making its way to Jackson later this week, as well as a donation of Gatorade to local area high school’s games this weekend.
