Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and his wife, Kelly Stafford, have pledged $220,000 to help several local programs aimed at aiding the Detroit area during the coronavirus pandemic.

Mike O'Hara of the Lions' official website reported the Staffords committed $100,000 apiece to the Forgotten Harvest, which delivers food to local charities, and the Detroit Public Schools Community District to help students impacted by the COVID-19 situation.

They also established a $5,000 credit to four restaurants—Slow's to Go, Zingerman's Deli, Wahlburger's and Roadside B & G—that are located in areas with a high population of hospital workers and first responders.
