HOUSTON -- Jadeveon Clowney knows how to turn trash into treasure.
When the trash cans arrived at NRG Stadium on Friday, Clowney decided to fill them up, posting a photo on Twitter with both them and a van filled with assorted toys and gifts.
Thank you @Jaguars fans for sending trash cans to NRG! It inspired me to fill them and an entire truck with toys to turn a negative situation into a blessing for some deserving women and children at @MissionOfYahweh #turningtrashintotreasure #merrychristmas pic.twitter.com/LamHoDSLEk— jadeveon clowney 7 (@clownejd) December 22, 2017
Clowney donated the truck full of gifts to the Mission of Yahweh in Houston.
The Texans tweeted video of Clowney making the donation.
Bonnie Upright, a public relations professional in Jacksonville, claims to have come up with the idea to send Clowney trash cans, which she said just popped into her head early Thursday morning. A few minutes later, she went on Amazon.com, picked out a trash can, plugged in the address and made the purchase.
"It's Christmas. It's the season of giving," said Upright, who formerly worked with the Blake Bortles Foundation. "Let's have a little fun with it. So I did.
"I was respectful. I didn't go at [Clowney] personally. Didn't say anything hateful or mean. I just wished him a merry Christmas from a trash-loving Jaguars fan."
