Lowery, several of his NFL friends and about 400 volunteers served lunch at the St. Vincent De Paul dining room near 10th Avenue and Jackson Street in downtown Phoenix.

"It's the best thing I've ever done in my life," Lowery said. "We may be successful but we're not truly successful if we can't share it with people who need it just as much."

Lowery puts on the "Champions for the Homeless" event several times a year including Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

In addition to the food and company, they gave away eight $19,000 scholarships to Spa Academy, which teaches skills like hairstyling and manicures.
