Isaiah Simmons has not even played a snap yet for the Cardinals but he’s already making an impact in the community.
The team’s first-round draft choice teamed with Bose and the Cardinals to donate 60,000 meals to the Harvest Compassion Center in the greater Phoenix area.
“I feel like this is a great opportunity to help out in Arizona, which is the new community that I’ll be a part of,” Simmons said. “It was a big emphasis for me to come in and make an impact not only on the field but also off the field in the community. So being able to partner with Bose and donate these meals to people that are in need during this stressful time is something that is really important to me.”
“We are so thankful to Isaiah and Bose for the donation to feed local families during this COVID-19 pandemic,” said Nicolee Thompson, the executive director at Harvest Compassion Center. “During this time, it has been hard. We have been spending four times (our normal weekly rate) on food products to make sure the increased demand is being kept up with. So again, we are so thankful to both Isaiah and to Bose for feeding our neighbors.”
The Cardinals selected Simmons with the eighth overall pick in last week’s NFL Draft.
