People in all walks of life have made donations of time, money and other goods to help those impacted by the challenges created by COVID-19 in the United States and that group includes those in the football world.

Thursday saw Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield join the effort.

In a video posted to his Instagram account, Mayfield and his wife announced that they will be donating $50,000 to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. The food bank says that every $1 donated results in four meals they can serve to a needy population.

The Mayfields also encouraged others to pitch in and the food bank’s website has a notice that any such donations, up to $100,000, will be matched by one of their donors.
