NBA players and their families continue to step up to help out those negatively impacted by the outbreak of the coronavirus, including children that may be without meals due to school closures. On Friday, Golden State Warriors superstar guard Steph Curry and his wife, Ayesha, revealed that they are donating to the Alameda County Community Food Bank to help serve the displaced students, through their foundation, Eat.Learn.Play.
"The world is changing before our eyes in terms of dealing with the spread of the coronavirus," Curry said in a video posted to his Twitter page. "We just found out that the Oakland school district is closing their doors for the foreseeable future, so we want to intercede on behalf of the kids that rely on their daily services and try to help in any way that we can."
Oakland is closing schools bc of COVID-19. We support this decision but are concerned a/b the 18,000+ kids that rely on school for 2+ meals daily. @eatlearnplay is donating to @ACCFB to ensure every child has access to the food they need.

Curry also invited others to join them in donating (which you can do here).
"We're trying to do our part," Curry said. "Hopefully you can join the fight with us and have each other's backs as we go through this uncertain time in our community."
It's nice to see Curry -- and others -- step up in this tough time. A NBA players, but it has the potential to be disastrous for those who work in or around the NBA in a non-basketball capacity, or those that don't enjoy the same access that the players do. Clearly, the players recognize this and are doing what they can to use their resources to help others.have also vowed to help out arena workers that will be negatively impacted financially by the league's current suspension.
