Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and his wife Kelly are stepping up once again to give back and help out in the Metro Detroit community during this uncertain time.
It is known that Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and his wife Kelly are frequently helping out and giving back to the Metro Detroit community. With the outbreak of COVID-19 across the country and in Michigan, the Stafford family is stepping up once again to give back to the community.
Stafford and his wife announced that they would be giving back to the local community by paying for meals for the hospitals where they are at or near capacity dealing with the outbreak of COVID-19. This is hardly the first time that the Stafford family has given back to the community as they have done plenty around the Metro Detroit area.
In the past, they have offered free tickets to first responders in the Metro Detroit area, teamed up with radio stations to do Christmas giveaways, and have also done visits with families as a special event to give back. This latest move by the Stafford’s is an excellent example of supporting everyone is so crucial right now.

In a time where the sports world has been put on pause, the National Football League (NFL) is one of the few things still in motion right now.
The Lions have been focused on signing free agents for the upcoming season, which gives fans something to read about at this time without sports.
Stafford has been a part of many trade rumors as the draft rumors regarding Tua Tagovailoa and others. However, he continues to be a fantastic ambassador for football in the Metro Detroit area.
Back in 2018, Stafford was a Walter Payton Man of the Year award nominee which was a testament to his abilities as an ambassador.
He was made a nominee for his off-the-field contributions to the community, which is again becoming newsworthy during these uncertain times.
He has done a great job of being an ambassador off the field by giving back to the community and being a banner representation of NFL and Lions football. A time where everyone is being urged to stay at home with the outbreak of COVID-19 left Stafford to find another way to give back to the Metro Detroit community.
If anything can be taken from this fantastic gesture by Kelly and Matthew, it is that we should all be kind to each other and offer support to all those in the community during this time.
