Ciara and Russell Wilson donate a million meals to Seattle food bank amid coronavirus pandemic

Ciara and Russell Wilson are helping out their community amid the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In a video announcement shared on their social media pages on Tuesday, the couple announced that they will be donating a million meals to a local food bank to aid in relief efforts during the outbreak.

Wilson, 31, began the video by noting how the coronavirus outbreak is “changing the world second by second, minute by minute,” saying, “People are losing loved ones. The elderly and the young. The people in between. You think about people losing jobs — even in Seattle.”

“What we’ve decided to do is partner up with our local food bank in Seattle, Seattle Food LifeLine, and we’re gonna donate a million meals [and] hopefully make a difference,” the NFL star said.

“We want to encourage everyone out there to join us in whatever way that you can, big or small. Everything makes a difference. Everything that we do together makes a difference,” Ciara, 34, continued.

“Together, we will conquer this tough time we are going through,” the singer said, to which Wilson added, “We will.”

The two stars ended the message by encouraging fans to “keep the faith” and “practice social distancing” during the ongoing health crisis.

“Praying for everyone out there,” Ciara concluded.
