Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is busy with the team's playoff push.
Still, during the Christmas season, he and his wife Kelly have found time to adopt two families during the holidays.
The Staffords helped out the children of Myron Jarrett and Kenneth Steil, two police officers who were killed on the job this past year.
"Just happy to hopefully bring some cheer to some people in the holidays that have had a tough time and this year, it was a great opportunity considering I did two families with fallen police officers -- people that protect us and lost their lives in the line of duty,” Stafford said on Thursday.
Kelly and Matthew bought gifts and hand-delieverd them to the wives and kids of the fallen officers. She posted photos on Instagram.
It's not the first time they've reached out to families in the area.
"It’s something we felt was important and just happy to do it," Stafford said.
Words can't express how we felt about this family. I think you can see it in our smiles how happy a night it was. This family has gone through a lot in the past month, but you would have never known it.. they welcomed us into their home with open arms. We are so grateful that we were given a chance to meet them, it was one of the best gifts we could be given. #besttimeoftheyear #amazingfamily #familyovereverything #donttakeasecondforgrantedwithlovedones
