Tim Tebow joined Sen. Marco Rubio in Big Pine Key today to check on post-Hurricane Irma recovery efforts.

Florida’s junior senator and the former Heisman Trophy winner┬áserved lunch and handed out ice at a drive-through distribution center.

“We can’t repair everything in a day. You probably can’t do it for a little while,” Tebow said, according to Miami ABC affiliate WPLG. “But you can let people know that they’re cared for, that they’re prayed for and they’re not in this journey alone, and that’s special.”

Irma made landfall just west of Big Pine Key in Cudjoe Key on Sept. 10.
