The following is the complete post from Brees’ official Instagram account:
“Brittany and I are committing $5,000,000 to the State of Louisiana in 2020. The priority now is helping our communities get through this tough time. After considerable research and conversations with local organizations, we will be mobilizing our partnerships with Second Harvest Food Bank, Ochsner Health Systems, Walk-Ons, Jimmy Johns, Smalls Sliders and Waitr to prepare and deliver over 10,000 meals per day throughout Louisiana for as long as it takes to children on meal programs, seniors, and families in need. Let’s all do our part, maintain hope, and get through this together.”
Brees and his wife, Brittany, are also working to deliver 10,000 meals in their commitment amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
The veteran quarterback also posted on his Twitter account to confirm the commitment to the state of Louisiana.
