(CBS4) — Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has started a new coronavirus relief campaign to feed students who usually count on eating at school.
“What we have seen over the past two months is unprecedented. The coronavirus has affected everyone in some way,” Miller said in a video.
“There are thousands of kids in my home states of Colorado and Texas who are unable to get daily meals because schools are closed for the foreseeable future,” Miller said. “In fact, one in seven kids already live with hunger.”
