New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is awesome!
Drew Brees and his wife Brittany are committing $5 million to the State of Louisiana for relief efforts to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. In his social media announcement of the financial commitment, Brees also encouraged his followers to “all do our part, maintain hope, and get through this together.
After “considerable research and conversations with local organizers,” Brees notes that this money will “be mobilizing our partnerships with Second Harvest Food Bank, Ochsner Health Systems, Walk-Ons, Jimmy Johns, and Smalls Sliders to prepare and deliver over 10,000 meals per day throughout Louisiana.”
The Brees family’s $5 million donation is one of the largest seen during this pandemic and one of the latest coming from the NFL community. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife Ciara have also done their part to combat the virus by donating one million meals to Seattle’s Food Lifeline.
