Saints QB Pledges $5M To New Orleans Virus Relief

ESPN reports:

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 tough time.”

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

Brees was personally touched by the crisis last week when it was revealed that his team’s head coach, Sean Payton, had tested positive for the virus.
