Carlos Correa donates $10K to family of Houston police officer shot and killed at traffic stop

Carlos Correa doesn’t just play for the Houston Astros, he’s dedicated to making Houston a better place and bringing the community together. Correa’s dedication, as well as his big heart, were on display on Monday when he visited the family of a slain Houston police offer who was beloved by the community.

Correa visited the family of Sandeep Dhaliwal, the first Sikh deputy in Houston, who was shot and killed during a routine traffic stop on Friday. According to sheriff Ed Gonzalez, Correa reached out not just to volunteer his time, but to donate $10,000 to the family who just lost their husband and father.

In a video taken just after the visit, Correa explained why he decided to help the Dhaliwal family, and why he felt connected to Deputy Dhaliwal.
