Drew Brees I just announced that he is donating $ 5 MILLION to the state of Louisiana to help with coronavirus relief efforts … just a few days after a new $ 50 million contract was signed with the Saints.
Quite awesome move by Brees, who is already loved in New Orleans because he did a good job in the community … like Construction of all-inclusive playgrounds.
“Brittany and I will provide $ 5,000,000 to the state of Louisiana in 2020,” said Drew. “The priority now is to help our communities get through this difficult time.”
“After extensive research and discussions with local organizations, we will mobilize our partnerships with Second Harvest Food Bank, Ochsner Health Systems, Walk-Ons, Jimmy Johns, Smalls Sliders and Waitr to prepare and prepare over 10,000 meals a day across Louisiana deliver as long as they are children with meal programs, seniors and families in need. “
He added: “Let us all do our part, keep hope and get through this together.”
Drew’s donation is the largest we’ve ever seen from an active professional athlete – pretty amazing stuff.
If you’re wondering, Brees has reportedly earned over $ 244 million in contract funds during his 19 seasons in the NFL and has just signed a $ 50 million two-year extension with the Saints.
