Around the world, people are grappling with the growing COVID-19 pandemic. In America, there have been more than 44,342 deaths from the dreaded virus. Social distancing has caused the cancellation of most major live events, TV productions and movie releases. Thankfully, the health concerns have not stopped people from giving back to their communities during this time of need. Here are a few celebrities that are giving back in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak:

The rookie power forward will help cover salaries of employees at the Smoothie King Center in Louisiana. He posted a heartfelt message on Instagram. He said in part,

“My mother has always set an example for me about being respectful for others and being grateful for what we have, and so today I am pledging to cover the salaries for all of those Smoothie King Center workers for the next 30 days. This is a small way for me to express my support and appreciation for these wonderful people who have been so great to me and my teammates and hopefully we can all join together to relieve some of the stress and hardship caused by this national health crisis.”

Rap superstar Kanye West, Chick-fil-A and a Christian nonprofit called the Los Angeles’ Dream Centre have teamed up to provide about 11,000 meals a day to those in need in Los Angeles. Since mid-March, more than 300,000 meals have been served.
