Many professional athletes have stepped up and donated money to different local organizations in their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chicago's very own Jonathan Toews, captain and centerman for the Blackhawks, joined those in helping their local community.

He donated $100,000 from his personal foundation to the Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund.

Currently, this is the biggest donation from a member of the Blackhawks organization, but other players have also been contributing to the response fund.

Right after Toews' announcement, the Blackhawks organization pledged that it will match the $100,000 donation to the Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund. The fund was created to help the most vulnerable residents in the community and give them the resources to make it through this terrible time. 

Both Toews and his entire team are encouraging others that can help out to do so by either donating, buying groceries for someone who cannot leave their home, writing letters to an eldery home, or most imporantly by staying inside and practicing social distancing.
