A delivery service whose customers include Dallas Cowboys DeMarcus Lawrence and Tyrone Crawford presented the Wilkinson Center with a $25,000 check Wednesday.

The donation was a thank you from the delivery service Gopuff, which opened its 17th location at 6955 Greenville Ave. in Lake Highlands. Gopuff not only made a financial contribution, the company also committed its near-expired products to the Wilkinson Center’s food pantry for the remainder of 2021.

Lawrence and Crawford, who is now retired, participated in the check presentation and helped fill boxes in the food pantry. Last year, the defensive ends raised money for the GENYOUth’s COVID-19 School Nutrition Fund.
