Cooper Kupp Donates 84,000 Meals to Folks in Yakima and So Cal
Former A.C. Davis High School and Eastern Washington University standout Cooper Kupp has made a name for him self as a sure-handed, reliable wide receiver in the National Football League for the Los Angeles Rams. In fact, he was recently listed as #89 in the NFL Network's countdown of the top 100 players in the entire league! Those that know him and his football playing family also know that they are very kind and generous.
Kupp put that upbringing on display when he personally donated $21,000 out of his own pocket which equates to 84,000 meals to people in need in the Yakima, Richland and Southern California area. A portion of his monetary donation went to 2nd Harvest Inland Northwest to help support people in Central and South Central Washington that have had their livelihoods stripped from them and their ability to provide for themselves and their families due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
*KUPP-DATE* - In a release posted on their website (July 31), Kupp was quoted on 2-Harvest.org following his $7,000 donation, "There is a battle going on to care for the people whose livelihood has been taken from them and their means of providing for their families stripped from them due to circumstances outside of their control. It’s a battle more than worthy of fighting for.”
Kupp has a fan-generated Facebook page that is frequently posted in by friends and family in Central Washington.
