The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation has donated $100,000 to the Capital Area Food Bank in an effort to help feed those in Prince George’s County that are hungry as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the team announced Wednesday.

"We are proud to continue to support our longstanding partner, the Capital Area Food Bank in providing food to hundreds of thousands of families who are facing hunger in Prince George's County during this health crisis," Redskins owner Dan Snyder said in a statement.

"I'd like to thank Angela Alsobrooks for her important efforts and hope that our donation helps make a difference in assisting the community during this trying time."

As the need for food has increased throughout the region over the past few weeks, the number of donations has dwindled. Alsobrooks, a country executive, hosted a press conference Wednesday to express the lack of food available to help feed those among the 20,000 county residents who have lost their jobs as a result of the virus.

The Redskins’ donation will help provide over 250,000 meals for families, children and seniors in need.
