Saints quarterback Drew Brees announced Thursday that he and his wife Brittany are committing $5 million to the state amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Brees says in an Instagram post that they will also be partnering with organizations and businesses like Second Harvest Food Bank and Waitr to prepare and deliver 10,000 meals a day throughout Louisiana.
The partnership, Brees said, will last as long as it takes to help children, seniors, and families in need during this time.
"Let's do our part, maintain hope, and get through this together," Brees said in his post.

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.
