Tim Tebow’s baseball season may be over, but his work is far from done.

After Hurricane Irma ripped through the southeastern part of the United States, leaving 11 dead, more than six million without power and thousands displaced from their homes due to flooding and destruction, Tebow hit the streets and shelters to uplift spirits.

The New York Mets prospect stopped by a shelter housing a World War II veteran and other people with “Special needs.” The veteran happily pulled out his harmonica to play for Tebow.

“Totally uplifted by this #ww2 veteran, who’s spirit and talents encouraged his fellow visitors at this Special Needs Shelter! #irma,” Tebow wrote on Twitter.


He also put up a picture with Red Cross volunteers at the shelter.


Earlier in the day, Tebow posted a message of hope on his Twitter account.

“What’s up Jacksonville and the state of Florida. I know there’s a lot of people hurt right now, but the awesome thing is we’re going to rally together and try to help everybody,” he said. “We’re praying for you. I’m just here at one of my neighbors’ and friends’ house. He has a tree going through his house. So, I know it’s a tough time for so many people, but just know we’re praying for you. God’s got a plan for everything, so keep trusting him. God bless, you guys.”



Throughout his first baseball season with the St. Lucie Mets in Tampa, Florida, Tebow was constantly in the headlines for his acts of kindness. Whether he was standing in the on-deck circle and making time for a boy with autism, or supporting a woman who has cerebral palsy as she sang God Bless America, Tebow constantly showed he was more than just an outfielder.

He’s a class act, who puts people first. And, that’s bigger than any play he could ever make on the diamond.
