When disaster strikes, The Salvation Army is often the first on the scene to offer food, shelter, clothing, spiritual comfort and more. The Cowboys are proud to have assisted the Army in their relief efforts in the DFW Metroplex and beyond, most recently after deadly tornadoes struck two nearby towns in Texas—Granbury and Cleburne—as well as Moore, Oklahoma.
