Quarterback Jared Goff and offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth announced that they would be paying or some two million meals through the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank in a bid to assist hard-pressed members of the community.
“There are so many people in need right now and we want to do everything we can to help our Los Angeles community,” Goff said in a news release, according to NBC Sports. “My hope is that we can inspire others to support organizations like the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and United Way’s Pandemic Relief Fund as we come together to face this crisis.”
The players will each gift the food bank with $250,000 donations in order to fund the meals.
“Tough times, like what we’re experiencing now, really show you the true value and importance of community,” Whitworth added. “We’re here to wrap our arms around our hurting neighbors, let them know that they aren’t forgotten, and that we are here for them.”
So far, the state of California has recorded around 1,000 cases of COVID-19 virus.
