With the entire world dealing with the coronavirus crisis, several professional athletes have helped with financial causes.
On Monday, two key Rams’ players contributed to causes in their home areas.
Rams WR Brandin Cooks has donated $50,000 to his hometown of Stockton, CA, to establish the Stockton Children's Fund. The money will help serve local kids who have been impacted by the effects of the coronavirus - helping to fund food and childcare, among other needs.— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) March 23, 2020
uncertainty and desperation for many. We are joining with Washington Kids in Transition as well as FareStart; both actively providing for those who need it the most. Please follow the links in my bio if you want more information on how to help.— Johnny Hekker (@JHekker) March 23, 2020
❤️ the Hekker Fam
Hekker, along with others in the Rams’ organization, is helping with the team’s TeLAthon to help the coronavirus effort in Los Angles.
Perhaps you can give him a call tomorrow for a great cause.
I will be manning the phones tomorrow along with other amazing @RamsNFL employees! We’re excited to receive donations that will help those in need in our community. #teLAthon #UnitedforLA https://t.co/GXtqFtw4rW— Johnny Hekker (@JHekker) March 23, 2020
The NFL season is almost six months away, yet the Rams are already winning off the field.
