Chicago Cubs’ Jason Heyward is donating $200k
Soft-spoken, good guy Jason Heyward is using the coronavirus layoff to make a difference in the world.
Last week, the Golden Glover announced he’s donating $200,000 to COVID-19 relief efforts in Chicago. He divided the donations into two categories. One hundred thousand dollars of the gift will go towards M.A.S.K, which is an organization that gathers supplies and food for those affected by the virus. The other half of Heyward’s donation is going to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
Chicago Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo is lending a helping hand
The Cubs’ first baseman has an incredible foundation, and by the looks of his Twitter account, the hiatus from baseball has given him even more time to do great work.
On Tuesday, his foundation donated a bunch of meals to Lurie Children’s Hospital staff.
On Thursday, he plugged one of his favorite restaurants in Florida (Runyon’s), encouraging his vast Twitter following to order carryout from them to help them get through the difficult time (restaurants are closed to dine-in because of the coronavirus). He did the same thing for restaurants in Chicago.
