Matt Stafford and Wife Set Aside Meals For Medical Professionals
And the giving just keeps on giving. Another star athlete doing what he can to help those most affected by COVID-19 is quarterback for the Detroit Lions Matthew Stafford and his wife, Kelly.
On March 26, Kelly took to her Instagram account to announce that she and Matt wanted to give back to those who are on the front lines, the people who are in the hospitals putting themselves at risk for the greater good.
So the couple partnered with a handful of restaurants to ensure that those medical professionals were getting a free lunch or dinner like they so deserve. “For all of you in Michigan who are putting your own health and life on the line to take care of others, we are all in such debt to you,” Kelly began. Matthew and I wanted to make sure that you knew how much we appreciate you and what you are doing and so did these restaurants we partnered with.”
The soon-to-be mom of four continued, “So please, if you are an employee of a hospital, please have whatever meal you want from any of these restaurants above on the Staffords.”
“This is for take-out only so everyone stays safe. It is limited to 3 meals per pickup. Please mention you work for a hospital when you call to place your order and please bring with you your hospital badge to show when you come to pick up your food! This is such a crazy, scary time in life and we couldn’t imagine what your days are like on the front line of it all. Please know we are thinking about y’all, praying for y’all and how grateful we are for the selfless service you are providing.”
And Staffords continued to donate money to different restaurants throughout the week and into the next. Their donations come just several days after announcing that they are expecting their fourth child together.
Both Kelly and Matt have taken this offseason to heal. Last year Kelly underwent brain surgery to remove a tumor, while Matt was mending a broken back.
