McCaffrey matching corporate donations

He pledged to match the donations of corporate partners Lowes and Bose and encouraged fans to join in, suggesting donations of $22, $220 or $2,200 to match his jersey No. 22.

He also encouraged fans to stay home and stay healthy.

As of Thursday morning, nearly 1,900 cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in North Carolina along with 16 deaths.

McCaffrey was widely considered last season’s fantasy football MVP, tallying 2,392 yards from scrimmage and 19 total touchdowns. He won a lot of people some money and has found a good cause for those who can afford to spare some of their winnings during a difficult time.
