Even though his time as a New Orleans Saints player is over, Ben Watson’s work off the field continues.

The recently-retired Saints tight end is doing his part to help three churches that were burned down in St. Landry Parish.

St. Mary Baptist Church, the Greater Union Baptist Church and Mount Pleasant Baptist Church were set on fire in a 10-day span. Each was more than 100 years old, with mostly African American congregations.

Donations for the three churches can be mailed here:
