John Wall donated over 2,300 N95 masks and over 600 meals to doctors and nurses at two different hospitals Thursday to provide relief to frontline workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

UNC Rex Hospital in Raleigh, North Carolina and MedStar Washington Hospital Center were the recipients of the masks and Chick-fil-A thanks to the Wizards' All-Star point guard.

Each hospital is special to Wall. Leading up to his mother, Frances' passing in December from breast cancer, she was treated at MedStar Washington and spent her final days in Wall's hometown at UNC Rex Hospital.

Along with Wall and Bradley Beal's contributions to frontline healthcare professionals, the Wizards continue to play a key part in their respective communities in and out of Washington D.C.

Earlier this week, Beal donated 50 computers and 100 Giant Food gift cards to students at Ron Brown College Preparatory High School in D.C. Before that, he and Celtics star Jayson Tatum partnered to donate $250,000 to Feeding America and the St. Louis Food Banks.

As the pandemic persists and Beal can't get it done on the court, his contributions off the floor are even more impressive.
