Green Bay Packers starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers has pledged to donate 1 million dollars to California fire recovery. The former University of California alum is making this pledge and hoping that others will donate as well.
“The California wildfires have devastated countless communities,” Rodgers said in a video posted on Twitter. “In Northern California, where I was born and raised, the city of Paradise burned to the ground, and many of the residents who got out are now displaced to my hometown of Chico, and across the north state. I personally reached out to my friends and the mayor of Chico to find out how to be of the most help. And raising money for both immediate needs and the long-term recovery is what is needed most right now. This is why I’m partnering with the North Valley Community Foundation and donating $1 million to help with recovery and eventual rebuild of these communities.”
Rodgers also announced a donation from State Farm, and encouraged fans to donate to the North Valley Community Foundation. Remember J.J. Watt led the fans to donated millions to the Houston Flood victims. I hope Aaron Rodgers does the same for the California natives.
