From our media partner KLTV, Deion - who has property in Van Zandt County - went to see the damage first-hand and decided to help his community after the tornado hit the area on April 29th.  Deion participated in a shopping spree at the local Sam's Club in Tyler with his sons to purchase the necessary items for his neighbors.

Him and his sons raced up and down the aisles in two minutes to gather as much as they could and along with the help of the Salvation Army and Retail Me Not, all of the items collected by Sanders and his sons totaled almost $10,000 and some of the residents onsite received gift cards from Sam's Club.
