    Drew and Brittany Brees pledge $ 5 million to help Louisiana

    METAIRIE, La. – Drew Brees and his wife, Brittany, announced a $ 5 million commitment to the state of Louisiana in 2020 to help “our communities get through this difficult time.”

    The New Orleans Saints quarterback said via Twitter last week that assessing the need for New Orleans is “a daunting task” in the wake of the coronavirus epidemic due to how many people it has affected in different ways.

    In Thursday’s announcement on Instagram, Brees said: “After significant research and conversations 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 deliver over 10,000 meals a day throughout Louisiana for as long as children need for meal plans, seniors and needy families. We all do our part, keep hope, and overcome everything together. “

    Drew and Brittany Brees are owners or investors of the restaurant chains and the food delivery service he mentioned in his post. They have been heavily involved in the communities of New Orleans and the South Gulf through their Brees Dream Foundation since Brees joined the Saints in 2006, providing instrumental help in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

    Last week, New Orleans Saints and Pelicans owner Gayle Benson also made a personal donation of $ 1 million to create the Gayle Benson Community Assistance Fund, among other activities.

    IS Pelican novice Zion Williamson pledged to cover the wages of Smoothie King Center workers for 30 days while the NBA season was suspended.
