COOPER KUPP SUPPORTS SECOND HARVEST AND VOICES OF HOPE – JULY 31
COOPER KUPP SUPPORTS SECOND HARVEST
Cooper Kupp, wide receiver for the Los Angeles Rams and graduate of Davis High School in Yakima and Eastern Washington University, recently donated $21,000 to organizations fighting hunger during the COVID-19 pandemic. Cooper’s very generous $7,000 gift to Second Harvest is providing food to children, families and seniors in need in local communities close to his heart, Yakima and Richland.
“There is a battle going on to care for the people whose livelihood has been taken from them and their means of providing for their families stripped from them due to circumstances outside of their control. It’s a battle more than worthy of fighting for,” Cooper said.
Thank you, Cooper, for giving back to your home community and helping get food to those who need it during this crisis! Read more about Cooper’s donation here. Also, congratulations to Cooper for recently landing on the NFL Top 100 players list for the first time in his career!
VOICES OF HOPE
“We have lost half of our income due to the pandemic. Childcare for our four kids and job prospects aren’t lining up yet. The Mobile Markets filled our kitchen. The peace of mind it brought, as well as healthy meals together, have been a huge blessing. I’m so grateful for the efforts by the volunteers and National Guard and for the healthy, fresh food we wouldn’t have otherwise been able to have right now. I’ve never once felt shamed for picking up food from these drive-up pantries. Thank you all so much.” -Linda, Spokane
