Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and his wife Kelly are stepping up to help hospital workers around our state by donating meals.

The meals will also go to the first responders who are continuing to work as the COVID - 19 virus spreads each and every day. This morning the couple announced that they would be paying for the meals in Royal Oak this week, and forked out over 5 grand for first responders there.

According to MLive, Kelly Stafford said that they will be doing this with multiple  restaurants in Michigan and also said:

“I will announce them tomorrow here on my Instagram with all the details, so if you work at a hospital, please go grab a meal on us and please stay safe and healthy. Thank you for all you do!”

The Stafford's are known for their generosity around our state.

Keep in mind that there are things you can do to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Always cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue or sleeve, stay home if you are sick and advise others to do the same, and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

WASH YOUR HANDS. WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN WITH SOAP AND WARM WATER  for at least 20 seconds.

Stay safe, stay indoors and please stay healthy.
