Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are the latest celebrities to contribute to relief efforts amid the coronavirus pandemic. Yesterday, Fueling the Fearless, an organization that orders food from restaurants financially struggling to provide meals to frontline health care workers, revealed that the couple donated 100 meals to staff at the East Los Angeles Doctors Hospital.
“This hospital is in the heart of downtown LA and serves a vastly underprivileged community with limited resources and support,” the organization wrote via Instagram, captioning a slideshow of photos of the medical staff and the food prepared for them. “The staff work tirelessly to care for the community and those often forgotten. Through these type of fully paid sponsorships @alikisgreektaverna and her donors bring a moment of relief to a most grateful staff. One hot meal let’s them know we are all in this together. So again, thank you @joejonas @sophiet @philymack @shondamcintyre for taking care of LA nurses and doctors. #eastla #healthcareheroes“
Jonas’s manager, Phil McIntyre, as well as his wife, Shonda McIntyre, also contributed to the meal donation.
Other celebrities to help fund COVID-19 relief efforts include Rihanna, Jay-Z, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, who collectively donated $6.2 million through their respective charity foundations last week, and Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, who donated more than $100,000 to British charity Feeding Britain.
