BUFFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is stepping up for Western New York in a time of need.
7 Eyewitness News has confirmed that Allen is planning to donate $25,000 to COVID-19 related causes. The news comes just hours after Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula vowed to donate $1.2M to FeedMore WNY, the COVID-19 community response fund, and local first responders and medical professionals.
Allen is entering his third season with the Bills. He tweeted "Can I also contribute?" after the Bills account posted about the $1.2M donation.
Allen is not the only player who is making a donation . Last week, Bills center Mitch Morse donated $100K to FeedMore WNY.
"You take a step back and you realize this is an unprecedented time and who knows if we'll ever see anything like this in our lifetime again," Morse told 7 Eyewitness News. "If there is any time to step up I think now is definitely it."
