With schools closed because of the coronavirus, Kyler Murray has stepped in to help children who counted on school meals to be fed on a daily basis.

Murray becomes the latest with the Cardinals to aid in COVID-19 relief. Linebacker Chandler Jones bought meals for people both in Arizona and his hometown in New York. DeAndre Hopkins donated $150,000 to the coronavirus relief fund here in Arizona, a fund that was helped started by the $1 million donation by the Cardinals' organization. The Cardinals also are donating a million meals to needy people hit by the coronavirus, and helped organize multiple blood drives at State Farm Stadium.

Play-by-play announcer Dave Pasch organized twitter connections to help those in need get their bills paid. The Cardinals also have cheerleaders who are nurses in this time of crisis.
