The NBA season may be on hold, but that is not stopping many players from still rising to the occasion.

Golden State Warriors All-Star Steph Curry became the latest player to step in to help out his community amid the coronavirus outbreak as he and his wife, Ayesha, announced their foundation, Eat.Learn.Play., is donating to the Alameda County Community Food Bank in an effort to provide more than 1 million meals to children forced to stay home from school.

The couple announced the initiative on Twitter.

“The world is changing before our eyes in terms of dealing with the spread of the coronavirus," Curry said. "We just found out that the Oakland school district is closing their doors for the foreseeable future, so we want to intercede on behalf of the kids that rely on their daily services and try to help in any way that we can."

Curry joins a list of athletes, NBA players in particular, to lend their support during the pandemic that has swept the nation.

Zion Williamson of the New Orleans Pelicans and Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers are both chipping in to pay arena workers who are losing wages due to games being halted.

In baseball, Trevor Bauer organized a charity whiffle ball game to benefit stadium workers, while the Pittsburgh Penguins of the NHL revealed they plan to pay arena workers while games are on pause.
