Isaiah Simmons has not even arrived in Arizona yet. He hasn’t put on a Cardinals uniform.

But the linebacker already is making a contribution in his new community.

The team’s first-round draft choice teamed with Bose and the Cardinals to donate 60,000 meals to the Harvest Compassion Center in the greater Phoenix area.

“I feel like this is a great opportunity to help out in Arizona, which is the new community that I’ll be a part of,” Simmons said in a statement. “It was a big emphasis for me to come in and make an impact not only on the field but also off the field in the community. So being able to partner with Bose and donate these meals to people that are in need during this stressful time is something that is really important to me.”

Harvest Compassion Center is a food and clothing bank serving the needy in the greater Phoenix area. They also offer hygiene, baby and home items for those living below the poverty line.

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the need in all those areas.

  1. Not only is he going to (likely) be one of the most productive guys from this draft but he’s also doing good things with his money before he’s even been paid. Congrats on what looks to be a great pick, AZ.

  2. I’m convinced that some people on here just thumbs down anything for no particular reason… no matter how positive the post or even if it’s just condolences/sympathy for the loss of a fellow human. I pity those miserable people.

  3. Pretty solid contribution considering that a trip to the grocery store can be a life-or-death situation for most seniors thanks to the virus.

  4. What a way to come to Phoenix. What a good man he is and he hasn’t even signed his deal yet. God bless that man.

  5. Bose and the Cardinals donated those meals but the guy doesn’t have the money yet to pay for those meals gets the credit. Okay. Maybe I’m being a touch cynical my bad.
