The Dallas Cowboys are stepping up to help their neighbors in Houston.

After Thursday's game with the Houston Texans was canceled, the team decided to host a telethon to help raise money for Hurricane Harvey victims.

The Cowboys hosted the televised event at the AT&T Stadium during practice. Players worked the phones and collected donations for the Salvation Army's relief efforts.

But the Cowboys aren't just asking for donations, they're also making some generous contributions of their own.

Running back Ezkiel Elliot tweeted earlier this week that he made a $21,000 donation to the Salvation Army and challenged his teammates and fans to do the same.

And wide receiver Dez Bryant answered with a $50,000 donation.

But that's not all.

The Cowboys donated $500,000 worth of clothing to Hurricane Harvey evacuees. Players, cheerleaders and the Jones family helped unload and organize the merchandise at the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center in Dallas.

It will take time to rebuild the damage Hurricane Harvey has caused, but it sure is nice to see Texans helping other Texans at a time like this.
