NFL players and teams continued to support COVID-19 relief efforts across the country in a variety of ways Thursday.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady announced that he is partnering with private aviation company, Wheels Up, for their "Meals Up initiative", an effort Seahawks signal-caller Russell Wilson and his wife, Ciara, have been at the forefront of. Brady is set to supply 10 million meals to Feeding America.
"I am moved by the heroic and selfless efforts of our frontline healthcare providers throughout the Carolinas and beyond," McCaffrey said in a statement via Twitter. "As such, I have decided to launch an effort to help them in their life-saving work."
On March 15, the Thielen Foundation made a $25,000 donation to Second Harvest Heartland to help feed students during this period that would otherwise go without meals.
The Thielen Foundation is also partnering with KFAN and iHeart Radio-Minneapolis to host the "Thielen Foundation Minnesota COVID-19 Relief Radiothon" on April 9 to raise additional funds for COVID-19 Relief.
"Although we are facing unprecedented challenges right now, it is important to remember that we are all in this together," said Landry. "I love the City of Cleveland, and I want to make sure our communities have the support that they need to stay safe and healthy. We hope these items will help ease burdens and protect the well-being of the families and students of East Cleveland."
"The Las Vegas Raiders are proud to stand alongside the incredible community leaders that are doing everything that they can during this time of need. Health and safety is always our top priority and we'd like to salute Governor Sisolak, Jim Murren and the entire Task Force for their tireless efforts in supporting health officials and healthcare workers throughout the Silver State."
Lurie released a statement that read in part:
"We are in the midst of a humanitarian crisis that is affecting all of us in so many ways. Every passing day brings new stories of heartbreaking tragedy, inspirational courage, and hopeful innovation. We can and will get through this, but only if we work together, care for each other, and focus our attention and resources towards sustainable strategies. There are so many individuals and organizations who are making daily sacrifices, and we are incredibly thankful for their dedication and bravery. We must continue to support these efforts in every way that we can, while also seeking a solution that will help us move forward."
