Houston Texans star JJ Watt and his wife Kealia Ohai have personally donated $350,000 to the Houston Food Bank.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the donation will provide over one million meals for those in need during the coronavirus or COVID-19 outbreak across the United States.

COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the new virus, stands for coronavirus disease 2019. The disease first appeared in late 2019 in Wuhan, China, but spread around the world in early 2020, causing the World Health Organization to declare a pandemic in March.
