The Las Vegas Raiders have been at the forefront of relief efforts in their community. Owner Mark Davis led with example after pledging $1 million to fight Covid-19 and the players have been no different and have done the same in areas where they grew up. Defensive end Clelin Ferrell has been the latest to make a positive impact.
Ferrell was born in Richmond, Virginia so it isn’t a surprise that he would help his home city. On an Instagram post, the defensive end talks about how important this is for him.
The Las Vegas Raiders are doing their best to set an example
“There’s something important about helping the people from this city and how we are built… For a long time, we have had one of the highest eviction rate in the country and people are losing their jobs because of the crisis so I’m donating $100,000 to the family crisis fund and eviction diversion program to help the communities that made me who I am. I love y’all and stay strong, stay safe and always stay Richmond!”
Ferrell isn’t the only Raiders players to help his community. Running back Jalen Richard did his part in Lousiana while cornerback Nevin Lawson and Treyvon Mullen teamed up for charity in Broward County, Florida.
It will be a while before football is played. Nonetheless, the Raiders are staying busy helping their communities.
