New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees announced Monday that he is donating $5 million to provide health care to underserved communities in Louisiana.

Brees and his wife, Brittany, made the announcement in a Facebook post, pointing to the COVID-19 pandemic as the reason for the donation.

The funds are coming through the Brees Dream Foundation.

“In partnership with Oschner Health, we will create community health centers in underserved communities throughout the great state of Louisiana. These health centers will offer primary and specialty care to communities who need it most,”Brees said, “and promote health equity for all.”
