The COVID-19 pandemic has presented unprecedented circumstances around the world and Rams quartberack Jared Goff and offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth are stepping up to help people all around Los Angeles.
Goff and Whitworth are each donating $250,000 to the Los Angeles Food Bank to help fund two million meals for those in need.
“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. “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.”
“Tough times, like what we’re experiencing now, really show you the true value and importance of community,” Whitworth said. “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.”
